I talked to my mom Friday night. We talked about Wayne, who's back in the hospital. Wayne was the organist at my church - not quite family, but not quite not family either. For all practical purposes, he is my godfather. (More about Wayne here).
She forwarded me an email today, from someone who'd been to see him yesterday. As it said, I really hope I'm wrong, but... Chances are pretty strong that I'll be going to Massachusetts for a funeral some time in the next week or two.
