Another one of those early morning calls

What is it this year? We've certainly had our series of early morning calls with the loss of my grandma back in September and then my mom's aunt in January. All have been bad, and this one was not an exception.

My aunt in Oklahoma called at 5:43 this morning very upset. Her first husband had died and was only a year older than her making him 57. Nobody knows how he died, he was found dead at his apartment yesterday morning by my aunt's youngest daughter. My aunt's youngest daughter (not the lesbian) was close to him and is devastated. My mom was in tears by the time she got off the phone. I met him 4-5 times and the guy was just so loving, had a warped sense of humor, and an amazing voice. This was so unexpected. He was so young.

Sadly, I don't think this will be the last of those calls this year...

Woah, that is sudden. :-( I hope everyone pulls out okay. Sometimes things like that happen - was there an autopsy (yet) to determine the cause of death?
