A father watches his 6-year old son say his prays one night, and hears him say, "And God bless Mommy, and God bless Daddy, and God bless Grandmama and Goodbye Grandpa."

The father tucks him in and wonders what his son meant, but doesn't ask him about it.

The next day the father gets a phone call at work telling him that his father died peacefully in his sleep.

That night, his son says his prayers again, and says them normally, until a month later, when the father hears him say,

"And God bless Mommy, and God bless Daddy, and Goodbye Grandmama."

This worries the father, so before he goes to bed he checks in with his mother, and finds she's got a little cold but nothing serious. However, the next m orning he gets a call from a neighbour who tells him that they found his mother had passed away in her sleep.

This worries him very much, especially when he hears his son say his prayers less than a week later.

"And God bless Mommy, and Goodbye Daddy."

The father is so worried that he's next that he doesn't use his normal route to drive to work the next day, taking 90 minutes to travel a 30 minute drive, nor does he go out at lunch time. He nervously takes the long way home, and thinks he's safe until he comes home to find his wife in tears.

"Honey, what's the matter?"

"Oh, sweetheart, I have terrible news! Our Postman was just delivering our mail, when he just died all of a sudden!"
