Before my Grandma died, I used to read the obits & wonder why people would write that an 80 y.o. person 'died suddenly'. I guess I figured at that age you would expect it. After Grandma, a very active 83 y.o., went to the e.r. for back pain & we heard nothing to contradict that, until the middle of the night when we got a call that she was dying, it made me really understand what 'died suddenly' means. It has been 2 yrs. & I am still devastated.
