Very sorry to here of your familys loses. It helps to vent. Hope the rest of the year works out better for you. If you go riding please try to go only if you have a clear mind. Years ago I turned left in front of somebody after a family member died,thankfully I did not get hit. Be careful and hang in there. Past few years I have lost three family members, its not easy but keep going on. Remember keep the rubber side down if you go for a ride and ONLY ride with a clear mind.

I would like to add my condolences too. We have been watching the news coverage of that fire as we have shirt tail relatives in Reno. Now, with what you have shared, I can't see that footage with the same detachment I had before. I'm very sad for your loss. As Speedblue admonishes; ride only with a clear head, we want you around here for a long time.

That's horrible Ed. My heart goes out to you and yours.
Don't question why you let this out here, just be happy you did. Can't keep it bottled up man

My condolences. Just goes to show that we shouldn't take things for granted. Our life circumstances can change so dramatically in the blink of an eye.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

Thank you for sharing your story. I too think it can help to let others know and get it off your chest a little. It also personalizes such a tragedy, helps us realize how precious life is and makes us appreciate our loved ones.
