Every time I hear "Rock of Ages" on the radio or live somebody dies soon thereafter

A week before thanksgiving 1993 I heard it on the radio in the car one morning on the way to school and My Grandfather died the next night.

June 30th 1997 I had a minister call me from the phone in the office of his church and the choir was singing it. That night my mother told me my eldest brother was found in the river in Iowa City.

February 6th 2000 I went to a house of a friend of a friend and they asked me to play it on the piano, with which they sang. It sure was pretty as they all had good clear voices. On Februrary 8th, my Grandmother died in Mankato Minnesota. (By the way, the right hand mainspring broke in my clock and took 78 teeth from the great wheel, an event which occured at 8:48 pm, when I was in Estherville on a service call. Grandma was 78 and died around ten to nine on the eithth-FWIW)
