Please keep the Hacker family in your thoughts and prayers.

Hacker’s death is yet another instance of a young, healthy person suddenly falling ill and dying. We recently covered a similar situation with a five year old girl.
Why are so many people dying suddenly? It seems that these instances have drastically increased over the last year-or-so.
As we await an update from Vanderburgh, our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and children. To lose somebody willing to dedicate their life to true public service is more than a tragedy.
