Yikes. This is an awful and tragic story, but it does remind me of the time Scott seemed to have inadvertently ended our relationship for several hours on Facebook.
A few months ago after we had set-up our Facebook profiles officially confirming our relationship, I noticed Scott's profile suddenly listed him as "single". At first I assumed it was a mistake -- especially since everything seemed to be fine with us after three years. But then I began to wonder and thought, "Gee, that would be a perfect subtle, non-confrontational way to dump someone -- something I certainly would not be above doing." Fortunately, Scott re-assured me it was a mistake and no meat cleavers were needed, but I still check occassionally. :)
