Yesterday evening our elderly neighbor, my stalker, sofie, came to our door. Well our window – remember she always knocks our windows for some reason. She gave us the sad news that our neighbor across the street, Jack, had died.
He too was elderly and had suffered from both depression and Parkinson’s disease and hadn’t been doing very well over the last two or three years.
About three weeks ago I saw an ambulance come to his house. It was early in the morning and the paramedics brought him out on an ambulance chair and transfered him onto a stretcher on the side walk. I was sad to see him going to the hospital, but I wasn’t overly concerned as he didn’t look too bad and was talking etc. He was also in and out of the hospital quite a bit so I never expected that that would be the last time I’d see him.
Chris went over to see his wife and give our condolences. We’d attend the funeral if there was going to be one, but she said that they were going to cremate him and then just have a very small service sometime next week.
