October is already breaking my heart [Oct. 12th, 2005|06:36 pm]
nepenthes59







Such an odd thing happened today. I was ready to comment on a friend's LJ post where she mentioned causes of deafness. I was ready to post that my friend Roman was deafened by WWII bomb raids in Germany - ...but I was trying to resist lj temptation & closed the comment window. No sooner had I done that, Roman's wife sent me and email saying their son Andy had died on Monday - he was only 26. It's not any easier to express your sympathy in Amer Sign Language.. ^^;; We were lucky to know Andy. He was a charming and gawky giant of a kid (7 ft tall almost? A common trait of people with marfan syndrome). Have fun up there, kiddo! (I say kiddo because when Leigh & I met Andy, he was just a youngster)

:/ I know people who lost their hearing due to the air raids on Japan and from the a-bombs...

My father was deaf being around the guns in WWII but had both eardrums rebuilt. Lucky he got by with a hearing aid. Amazing.
So sorry about Andy passing. That is so sad when they are so young.

So sorry to hear about Andy. That must be very hard on his family. The fact that you were thinking about his father when you heard-- you must be very close to them.
