Seven weeks after my brother died my 98 year old mother followed him. Not so bad , she still was very clear headed. Just finished a 1200 page book on John Adams. She died 4 hours after we visited her As I was packing up to race this Sunday at Rock Falls we received a call that my wife's sister, who is also her best friend died suddenly Friday morning. She was 74. Was going to take part in an exhibition with some of the Meltdown Drags guys that were coming up from southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. My wife is going to need a ton of support as she and her sister were very close. I, myself was in ER a couple times the last 2 weeks. I was retaining a certain fluid and almost suffered kidney failure. I now have a take home kit that I have to use 4 times a day to get rid of said fluid. That ain't gonna slow me down however.
