We lost a member of Saint Middle School last night to complications from the flu. She had other medical issues that may have made her more susceptible to the effects of the flu - we will not know what actually happened until the autopsy is complete.
I spent a good part of the afternoon with her husband of 39 years, as he attempted to wrap his brain around the idea that she is gone. I wouldn't wish this kind of grief on anyone.
So get that flu shot, and if you're medically fragile, please check with your doctor about getting the H1N1 vaccine.
And may her soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace. Amen.
