My Mom's uncle died on Thursday - we went to the wake yesterday afternoon and the funeral was this morning. I wasn't very close to him, and he was sick with Hospice (so this isn't unexpected). Still, its weird that the funny old guy that used to tease the kids at Christmas Eve by taking his teeth out and calling everyone "droopy drawers" is gone. He was a WW2 Veteran and his "Tin Can Man" cap was with him in the coffin (aparently he served on a destroyer). Here's the obit:

My Dad's uncle also died. I wouldn't know him if I ran into him anywhere, and just remember Gram making reference to him. He also had a wake yesterday and a burial this morning. I can't even remember his name right now (Gram was one of 19, and I can't keep them all straight).

Gram herself is in the hospital. She was having problems breathing over the weekend and was taken to a local hospital near my aunt's place in Webster (where she was spending Christmas). They say her heart is OK, and she may have emphysema. Of course, my parents didn't tell me this (assuming I knew, somehow) and don't know/care about the details of the admission.
