My ex-father-in-law was killed on Aug. 27. He was struck by lightening in his own back yard while letting his new puppy do his business. This is one of the strangest, most horrible, most random things I've ever heard of happening. I feel bad for my ex-wife & her mother. Not that they had any love for me towards the end of my marriage, cuz they most certainly didn't. Actually I think they hated me.
Still, I've had at least a half a dozen dreams in the past few weeks with him in them. Weird, scary as hell vivid dreams bordering on nightmares. Odd.
