      for your kind words.  He was a sweet and resilient man, and at 89 still had some life in him, but by the end he just wanted to get it over with---'just shoot me'--which I understood--there was no pleasure in his life at that point. Ironically as a long-retired army officer he had gotten years of compassionate and quite good care from the army hospital and a VA hospital in his area.  I wish his doctor had been more in touch with the European literature, but he had an ever-increasing patient load at that point.
