Got word a little while ago that one of my Brother-in-laws died this morning while shopping.  My sister, his wife, died a few years back and he never got over it.

They're together now so that's good.  Please pray for him.

Thanks to all for your kind remarks.  My sister and brother-in-law were about as mismatched as you could get but they loved each other dearly.  He never recovered from her death.

Just an FYI.  Along with their full time jobs they built and raced AA Dragsters and Funny Cars.  When Sandi died we had the largest service my church had ever seen.  People came from all over the country.  Including 2 complete drag racing teams.  It was amazing.  Her ashes were spread over race tracks all over the country and his will be too.

My sympathies for both or your losses.  From what you wrote it is easy to tell that they not only loved each other but were loved by many others.  That love will never go away.

My thoughts are with you.

tecwritr,

My sympathies to you and your family.

Reading your message, it made me think of the old radio ads on WABC-77 in New York City: "Saturday! Saturday! Burning nitro! Funny cars! Raceway Park, Englishtown, New Jersey!"

I don't know if your sister and brother-in-law ever raced at Englishtown...

From the racers I know and the reading I've done, the racing communities are very tight, and your story is an additional confirmation. Thanks for sharing your sister and brother-in-laws stories.
