A Mother's Grief

TUCSON, Ariz. The grief of losing her son in Iraq may have been too much for an Arizona woman.

Friends say Karen Unruh-Wahrer collapsed and died at her Tucson home, days after learning that Army Specialist Robert Unruh had been shot and killed near Baghdad on September 25th.

He'd been in Iraq less than a month when his unit was attacked. His 45-year-old mother collapsed Saturday -- just hours after seeing her son's body.

A co-worker of of the grief-stricken woman quotes her husband as saying she died of a broken heart.

Blonde nod to AmericaBlog for keepin' it real.
