I know it happens.  But it doesn't make any less sad.

Whatever "indammation" was (do you you think they meant "inflammation"? maybe appendicitis?), it still sounds more peaceful than some of the other missionary deaths you have reported. But yes, what a sad way for his family to greet his return.

When I first read this I thought bowel obstruction. But appendicitis is far more likely. Sad noetheless.
