Goodbye, Wrennie

I read something on Facebook this morning that made me think something was wrong. I even told my husband that I thought something was going on but I wasn't sure what it was. And, with the peculiar things people often post on Facebook -- things that make no sense 0r things people seem to think everybody wants to know -- it's hard to separate the wheat from the chaff.

It didn't take long, though, to find out what was happening. My former sister-in-law died this morning. At the moment, it's not known what happened -- at 6 AM she was alive, at 9 AM, she was not -- and we may never know for sure.

Wrennie was only a couple of years older than I am. I'd known her since Mark's brother married her some twenty years ago. Their subsequent divorce a couple of years ago was as sudden and shocking as this news today.

It was because of this divorce that we ended up with their much-loved black pug -- then called K.C but who we renamed Darcy. Unfortunately, last summer we lost Darcy (see "canines" in labels).

Today, I know Wrennie got a pug kiss on arrival.

  1. Oh, my dear, this is so very sad! My thoughts and prayers are going out to you and your family! And, for the record, I have no DOUBT in my mind that she is receiving precious pug kisses as we speak!! Hugs!!

  2. How awful that you found out via Facebook. I'm so sorry, Lynn.

    May Wrennie rest in pug kisses galore.

  3. The really sad thing is, because of the divorce and the way it happened (and other things), I had become disconnected from her (and my brother-in-law had remarried so that made things a bit sticky)-- and it wasn't until I got going with Facebook that we reconnected. It was actually a good way to do that -- not extremely intimate but a way to stay in touch. The thing is her death has made me realize that I have missed her.

    Lynne, I actually found out because my eldest daughter called me -- but she'd seen it on Facebook. I had read something earlier alluding to something terrible going on but didn't know what it was -- I told my husband that something was wrong an hour or so before we knew. I guess we are living in a Facebook world where everything (good and bad) is recorded instantly.

  4. oh,, not a happy post, but thanx. Hope things are ok with ya..
