Hubby went to sleep - my kids went off to school...I sat down to
What. The. Heck?
By the time I hung up and ran to the bedroom hubby was already on his cell phone cos another cousin had called to tell him...hubby was in shock...felt guilty cos he should have MADE his cousin go home when he said he wasn't feeling well.
He's feeling bad that of all places to pass away.
He passed away at work.
On the job.
Hubby went to work. I went and picked up MIL (who also works there!) and went to work with her.
The work had of course come to a standstill. Tight-knit workers all standing around idle. We went into the control room and there he was...his wife (yes - she works there too!) and his 20yr old son (yes he works there too!) and their 14yr old son standing around him, Shocked. Crying. Somehow existing. I didn't know what to say...I felt like I was floating around in a dream. There were around 5 other close family members in the room...I made a quiet exit back outside.
Unbelievable. 48yrs old. Two young sons. 4 week old grand daughter. Wife. Elderly mother. He's gone. Just like that. Gone.
