I got a call from my daughter late last night around 1am. She told me that TJ (her uncle and my ex's younger brother) was killed in a car wreck on the early morning of Groundhog Day in New Boston about 1am that night.

TJ was only 31. Even though I had lost touch with him and the rest of my ex's (Ann) family years ago, I couldn't help thinking about the times back in 1984, 1985, and 1986 when I went to Ann's house to see her that all of her sibblings were always there. Ann comes from a big family. She has an older sister, then it's her, and then followed by two more sisters. And rounding out the 6 of them was the two youngest sibblings that were her brothers.TJ was the youngest of them all.

I remember going up there and rough-housing with them all out in the front yard. The smiles on their faces and all the laughing and fun we all had wrestling around in the grass and hay with each other (they had put out a little hay with some grass seeds to help grow the grass) was priceless.

It got me thinking more about how we should never take family and friends for granted in life, and to enjoy every chance we can get with our loved ones.

The family is really going through some really tough times, and I would appreicate if you would keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

You have my prayers for the family and affirmations. Thirty one is so young. Was wreck related to the weather?

So sorry to hear that. I totally agree that we should never take family or friends for granted. I've learned that all to well over the years.

My condolences to your daughter and to his family.
