Small Town Coroner
Today was a very tough day for me. My father in law and mother passed away. He was mowing in the backyard and collasped due to the heat. He was dead twenty minutes later due to heat stroke. His wife, my mother in law had a heart attack after the news. She was out getting groceries to make dinner. My only connections left to my wife and daughter, her family, .. my family are no more. It makes me feel like I've got nobody left. My family all lives out of state. I requested for someone out of the county to do the autopsies. That was too much for me today. I went out the the apple orchard where we all met after my wife and daughter's funeral. I knew that this time nobody was there to comfort me. I guess what they say is true when two people are married for a long time when one is gone the other loses the will to live. I've never seen anything like it. In all the years I've been in my job never have I seen it. God rest there souls.
