A week ago today one of my neighbors (the next block up) killed himself. I didn't really know him or his wife. We knew each other by sight and to wave when we passed by.
So why it his death bothering me so much?
If, as rumor has it, he died the way I heard it wasn't pleasant. And his poor wife. She came home from work around 10:30pm and found him in the back yard. Naturally she called 911. And naturally since a gun was involved the police treated it as a murder or whatever and took the wife to the police station to test her hands for gun powder residue. And because the police had to do their thing my neighbor lay dead in his yard until about 4:30am.
No notice was in the paper until yesterday so I am guessing that is because the police made them do an autopsy or something. There is a memorial service for him tonight. Which I also find strange. I have never heard of memorial services at 8 pm.
