Some people just cannot catch a break.

I was just looking at the website of Spencer Nastrom. He is the oldest son of Sandra Jacobson and half-brother to John Jacobson. Sandra and John disappeared without a trace in 1996, when Spencer was sixteen. Spencer was then raised by Sandra’s mother. In 2005, his father (Sandra’s ex-husband) was brutally murdered. The crime has yet to be solved. Spencer had three daughters and finally married their mother, his longtime girlfriend, in 2007. His 24-year-old wife died of strep throat (of all things) this past May.

Definitely a lottery family. Or at least, one lottery person. I just hope this poor man’s kids don’t start dropping dead. I’m not superstitious, but if I was I would say he was cursed.

    She didn’t die of strep throat — she died of an infection of the strep bacteria. Still sucks.

    I dunno if I have PMT or what but that website just bought tears to my eyes.

    I am appalled at your statement:

    ” I just hope this poor man’s kids don’t start dropping dead. I’m not superstitious, but if I was I would say he was cursed.”

    Spencer may happen across your post someday, and imagine if you were him and had to read what you just wrote.

    What makes you think Spencer may not have had the same thought himself? I imagine if I were him, the thought of being cursed would surely occur to me. I would also imagine that anyone who read his story might get that impression. Bad things happen to good people, but not everyone accepts that.
