  •  I'm sorry for the loss of your friend, gchaucer-- (2+ / 0-)

    he sounds like such a good soul.

    I have a dear friend whose 93 yr-old mother is in that place
    right now that your friend was.  The place where we're not
    quite sure what to pray for.

    A wise and saucy old Italian immigrant gal, who
    was up until a few months ago cooking and doing laundry
    and scrubbing the hell out of her house.

    Her doctor told her daughter [my friend]:

    "Your mother has--after all--been on this planet much
    longer than most people."

    Ah yes, there's that--and so true.
    But small consolation, there.

    We mourn the passing of these wise old ones,
    who pass on the stories, and knew us when
    we were little.
