Was supposed to go to a different Danish Club meeting and look at used Volvos, but I got a bad feeling about driving, so I made a really tasty supper.

Started out a busy day at work, good coffe crowd, several people standing in line, just then I got a phone call. Dh's mom passed away this morning. Big suprise. We were all just there last weekend to celebrate her 88th birthday. His sister found her in her chair this morning.

It's the 3rd death in 3 days here. The first was a 78 year old gal from church. She complained about a stomach ache. Went home, put on her p.j's & they found her about 7 pm in bed, dead.
Another was a 58 year old hair stylist (first cousin) Her shop was in her home. She sat down to put her feet up after a couple of appointments. Her husband found her dead in her chair a few hours later.
Then today my mother in law. Crazy how all of them were so sudden with no warning. No hospitalization or illness.
I feel like I have been going through this day in a haze.

Sounds like your MIL had the perfect Birthday and was able to see all the people she loved. Not saying it is a good thing she died, but often a person puts off dying until they can fulfill seeing everyone together one last time.

My condolences and I feel for your losses. {{{{{SB}}}}}
