5. There is just so much death lately.

I guess there always was. It sure feels like we are drowning in it.

9. Doubtful. My guess is something like aneurysm or genetic heart defect?

10. I don't think so

She never went to the hospital. The coroner was called to the home.

7. Very sad indeed.

Andy Barr is my district's representative. I've had a couple conversations with him in recent years, and while I disagree vehemently with him politically, I have always found him to be very cordial, attentive, and decent. How awful for him and his girls. 39 years old, too. And to happen in the middle of a campaign.
