Sunday morning, Ric's brother called with bad news. Their father took a nasty fall Saturday evening. The details are bad, and I will omit them here. He was in ICU, and Ric decided to head up to see him. He and Grant took off Sunday and will be there for a few days, at least.
What else could he do? When family is in need, you respond. That's why Ric had to go. And why did Grant agree to go with him, just like that? Because sometimes, a good friend is closer than family.
The prognosis for his father is not good, but we will all continue to hope for the best.
