I've just been told about a rellie who died from being struck by lightning. That's supposed to be the same odds as winning the Lottery. Maybe I SHOULD buy a ticket!


Clare Report 19 Mar 2006 10:21

This isn't a funny little story but I thought it was rather sweet... Couple about to celebrate 75 years of marriage, wife goes into hospital with a stroke, husband is admitted 5 hours later. While the nurses are trying to arrange them to be together on the same ward. Wife deteriates & family is called, wife passes away within 2 minutes the husband also takes his last breath not knowing his wife had died 2 minutes previously. I just thought it was so touching that they had spent so long together in life they obv knew they would be together in death. .....

I really need to get some death certificates. I've always been told I had a twisted sence of humour they must be right since I've been laughing so much at this. One death I know of is my GGrandfather who drowned in a causeway in Sydney NSW. I thought a causeway ran through the road for water to pass through so god knows how he drowned in that. And Re: there's a lot of people that have died of diarrhoea and someone said that they wondered what it might have been called all those years ago, while this will I'm sure remain a mystery to us all in the Navy we called it ass piss. Thought you might find it amusing.
