Connor Random died, age 74.
His widow, Carla, was just 61 but she was close to her end as well since she'd not got nowhere near to fulfilling her LTW. That left a bit of a quandary. Carla's young daughter, Carol was still 4 days away from becoming a teen. If Carla died before then, Carol would be taken away by the social worker.
So she consulted her older daughter, Carine. Carine had just given birth to a baby boy - Carl. Carine and Ashley had just extended the house so as to have a proper dining room and lounge area. They couldn't afford to build another bedroom or for Carine to leave Ashley with the baby and move in to her mother's for a while. So Carine asked her cousin, Lynette. They had a three-bedroomed house by the sea in Bluewater. But Glen didn't want an old woman dying in the house and leaving a child with them. Next best bet was Uncle Cleve who lived alone. He was 67 but still had a few days left. He agreed.
Carla returned home from work one day at about 6pm and was now 64. It was evident that the Grim Reaper was due to arrive any minute. Carol quickly packed as much as they could and they moved into Cleve's place. Cleve got talking to Carol to get to know her and they hung out outside. Carla met death upstairs. They hadn't got there a moment too soon.
Cleve and Carol got on quite well and he showed her his operating machine.
A couple of days later Carol grew to a teen.
And with that, this marks the end of the Growing Sim blog at Blogigo. Over at Wordpress I'll continue with the story of Sims in Veronaville and the Brokes, Pleasants, Dreamers and Goths in Pleasantview.
