I remember some years ago when my mom complained that she was attending funerals way too often and I am beginning to feel the same way. I guess we all get to that age where our bodies give up and God calls us home. Friends I never dreamed would just one day not be there are gone. My dad has now lost all 3 of his older brothers with the oldest dying last Saturday though he still has his 97 year old sister and a couple younger half siblings. My mom was the last of her generation dying last Monday very unexpectedly at 87. I know I am lucky to have a long lived family and I guess that should tell me to really start taking much better care of my body so I can be as healthy as my dad at the age of 90. That plus my one son in law told me to because we are the only parents he has. Sorry to be a bit depressing but it's been a rough couple of weeks.
