I blogged a few days ago about being in a downward spiral due to family and friend issues.
Well, this one I didn't anticipate, although I probably should have. My father-in-law passed away Friday morning. He had been in and out of the hospital a few times in the past few weeks and had dementia, but he was such a jovial person. He was 86 years young. Anyway, several years ago before his dementia got bad he had some health problems and he said, "Well, I've had a great run. I've got no complaints." He lost two wives to cancer and still he kept going and raised 3 kids. This was such a neat perspective, especially compared to my own parents who are the most negative people I know.
I sure hope that when my time comes I can be as cool about it as my father-in-law.
Rest in Peace, Lee.
