I refer to my boys’ dad as my ‘ex’ though when we split up years ago the boys were so upset about legal batttles that we just split up, and never divorced legally….
For many years we barely spoke but then with the grandkids…we bacame friends again.
This is a guy who overcame a horrible motorcyle accident, two hip surgeries…was always active; and then a flu came upon him.
Without going into detail here which I cannot bear to, in the end the flu hit him so hard that he succumbed to a heart attack.
We are all in shock / please pray for my boys if you can, and thank you. They were so close to their dad; they loved him so much.
