  • The worst one I ever had to make was to ring my aunt in New Zealand and tell her that her brother, my father, was dead.
  • The worst call I had to make was ring my sister to tell her to go and tell my Mother my son had been killed. She idolised him and I could not let her be alone when she was told. Then I had to ring my mother recently to tell her to get to the hospital my husband was not going to pull through.
  • I got a message from my mom at 4am in nov 2008. We knew my grandpa was dying and I had a sick feeling he had just passed away when I heard the message, she didn't say what it was, just to call her, and I could hear it in her voice. I was crying before I even dialed to call back. :( That feeling of unsure dread made it worse than knowing he had passed.
  • Worsted? *giggles at made up word* People bullied me in 6th grade and my parents made me call one of them to tell them how it made me feel.

  • The phone call that told us that our son was missing. It felt like my heart had stopped for the next three days until he was found. A wonderful couple found him and got him to an ER where he was listed as a John Doe. Thankfully all is under control now.
  • My brother was very sick...we knew he wasy dying but many were in denial regarding just how soon it would be...our parents (2 hrs away) were going to come see him the next day but I had to call them at 3AM and tell them, they needed to come NOW that he wouldn't make. They made it in time...he died about the time they originally planned to leave their house...so they got to spend a couple of hours by his side and be with him when he died.
  • Like so many here, it was a death. I called my brother and said "get over to Mom." That was all I had to say. He started crying and headed over to her, while my sister and I were at the hospital with my dad. While I was out of the room calling, my dad died.
