We are now living in something years back one could never have imagined. Lucky it wasn't a facebook post or one of the other social media ways of doing things such as a text.
Shocking. Maybe it was the fastest direct way open to them
Very sad, just shows how fragile life is, the odds of her dying like this were millions to one but it happened, we should all be thankful for each day.
If you watch many cop shows, the police still do death notifications. Worst part of their job. But this was such a major news event, they needed to notify him quickly before he did read it on Twitter or Facebook. It was sad all around.
"“The chaplain at the hospital called and said," - Why would you do this over the phone... I mean really... what happened to the days when you would get a visit from Authorities... This just seems so impersonal and kind of like saying.... "Oh BTW, your wife did today in an accident" which is basically what happened. In the past officials would get the message to authorities who would then go visit the family or person and usually have a friend with them for support....
Maybe I am just an old foggie living in the past... But this seems so wrong in so many ways!
