Just when you thought he was safe

My family gets confusing at times. Death is a simplifier.
The son of my (step?)aunt's first marriage died last night.
He was a soldier. Engineering Corps of some type. He served in Iraq. Then he was transferred to Afghanistan.
Then he left the war zones recently and came home, only to die in a car crash.

Death is supposed to be a soldier's constant companion. You just don't expect house calls.

Death is a simplifier. There is a mother in mourning. He's family.
