Got a call about an hour ago from a PA number I didn’t recognize. It was my aunt and her voice was breaking and I could tell it wasn’t her phone. I knew instantly what this was about:
“He’s d-dead, Johmny, i-in his sleep a few minutes ago. You need to come home immediately.”
I knew he was in rough shape while I was in Disney two months ago, but this was still a surprise. Particularly since I was planning on coming up to see him on Friday once this stomach bug I picked up in Tampa cleared up a little more, but it appears as if my plans have changed….
