Tonight I had to go to a wake. I didn't want to go--who does?? This was different for me, it was for my nephew Michael's father. I was never a fan of John (long story) but he was too young to die never mind that he left behind 3 young kids. I went to the wake out of respect for Michael but man it weirded me out when I saw his dad in the casket & I was struck by how much Michael looked like him! Freaked me OUT!!

It didn't hit Michael yet--he actually seemed like he was in a daze, the poor kid. My sister Rita took it hard they broke up a few years back but the way she was crying you'd think she was the widow . His widow & his parents were inconsolable--it was heart-breaking to watch. No one should die that young. My other sister Chet was very upset too since they were all friends. Watching Michael with his half brother & sister was different since I've only ever seen him & Destiny together. The kids were floating around like they were at any family function, I don't know how long it's gonna take for them to fully understand. They are just too young to be without a father.

Peace be with you John.
