Unexpected loss

Meriam and Jens - May you Rest in Peace
In my three decade stint on this earth, I have been blessed with very few death that have hit close to home. In fact most of those death were expected due to age or illness. Even as a volunteer firefighter I was lucky enough to never having to deal with death. Until this morning, death wasn't close and crual...
I was woken up by a call this morning with a blocked number, I figured it would be my mom and wondered about it, as I only spoke to her yesterday morning. I could hear by her voice that something had happened and then she said: Something really awful has happened. I don't know why by my first thought was that my brother was involved in a car accident. And then she told me that Ulla and her two kids have died. When I asked what happened she told me that a fire broke out in their flat and they could not get out. Aparently Ulla went outside once to call for help and then went back inside to rescue both of her kids but they never made it out and died due to the smoke inhalation. Her partner Hüssin came home just minutes before the firebrigate but while he tried to get in the house to get his family out, he never made it inside

This is so cruel, the kids have only been 3 and 1 year old. Jens the little boy was a suprise baby when she gave birth to him in the bathroom as she didn't know she was pregnant. He was named after my brother too. My brother is best mates with Hüssin und his brother and we all have been close to the family.

I was in shock all day and was send home from work as I was so upset about this.

Ulla, Meriam, Jens
You have been taken from this world way before your time
May you rest in Peace
