A fairly distant connection (colleague and friend of a colleague and friend) and her husband just adopted a baby last summer. Day before yesterday, her mother and father were in a bad car crash; her mother was killed and her father badly hurt. I find I am sad this little baby will not know his grandma, and his mom will have one less helper.
Another friend's mom is getting 'further tests' for a possible mass with extra outlying spots on her brain.
My mom and dad are fine. I checked.
