The Grim Reaper was busy Friday night here in Tulare County.  I came to work at 5pm, and by 6:30 we’d already received 5 calls for the coroner.  Those 5 were all of natural causes, people of various ages passing away at hospitals or homes, requiring a deputy coroner respond to verify no foul play involved in the passing.  One a fetal demise, that’s always sad, and later at least one due to a traffic accident.  The tally was 7 for the day when I left at 3am.  Maybe the Reaper will take the weekend off, since he was so busy Friday.  We can only hope.
