My God. We just found out that Mr. S’s niece’s husband hanged himself last night. She found him and tried to cut him down, but couldn’t, and called 911. Somewhere in the confusion her husband’s father came over and got him down. That’s all we know at this point – we’re wating for her mother, his sister, to call us back.
She and her mother used to live in this house with Mr. S when he was single. They weren’t ever really close, and we didn’t see the niece at all after she and her mother moved out. She got married several years back, and (as far as I can recall) we weren’t invited to the wedding, which was fine. Her mother, Mr. S’s sister, is pretty quiet, but we bump into her now and then.
The niece is all of 32 years old. Is it wrong of me to think, “Thank God they didn’t have any children”?
Back later . . .
