If your friend can't make it, let me know. I'll go with you.

I'm sorry.

The stats seem higher for you because you know so very many people.

Corn flakes work good too.

I must live a sheltered life. None of my children ever had to experience this. We did have one young man shoot himself in the student parking lot because he set himself up for all sorts of jail time, drugs and weapons at school ... manditory expulsion and jail sentence, but we lost no parents.

When I was in high school one my scoutmasters died from lung cancer, but that was it.

I also lost friends in junior high and high school: meningitis, neck broken after falling out of a truck, and abducted/murdered after her store was robbed. One talked to the parents, gave your condolences, and carried on.

I suggested cornflakes first, which is he ended up doing the whole honey bunches of oats things.

This situation with this family appears to get more and more dire every day to me. I'm a little pissed at the situation. It's going to be difficult for me not to think some bad thoughts about the deceased and the state he left his family in.

Such great kids...

My wife has used cornflakes, honey nut cheerios, and even Froot Loops (truly!) to bread chicken with, and all have been quite tasty. Warning about the Froot Loops - it tastes great, but tends to give the chicken unsettling colors.

Another? I wonder if it's Florida... wow. I think when my kids were young I knew of 2 fathers who died during their entire time as school age kids. Both were heart attacks (one was a very young 40 years old). Then there was one child who died, a very sad story (suicide). Otherwise, even with the large number of people we knew in general, life just moved along.

My prayers for the family. It' sounds as if they really need them along with quite a bit of practical help.
