A death in the family is difficult, obviously. But after the first, you know what's coming and you see the patterns kind of repeating themselves. This is one persons very short story of what happens during the process.
Young family gets more than they bargained for when they move to new house in a new town. The original owners may still be there in spirit, and they compete for the attentions of the father, while his wife "works" the night shift with the kids. The Dad finally learns to accept these goings on when God wakes him one night and speaks four simple words to him.
