    Thanks but that was a few years ago and they are both gone now.

    That's the problem, isn't it - there' just aren't any. But hopefully gene and stem-cell research will provide some good alternatives, if not complete cures soon - if religious fanatics and political extremists would just let the scientific communities do their jobs - within ethical reason that is, whatever that means.

    Sorry to hear that. My apologies. Remission is an intense day to day struggle. Is today the day it decides to return. It's always in the back of your mind.

    Thanks, but for sure, no apologies needed. My mom died at 74 from complications of a stroke. And my dad was 85 so he had a good run.

    I need 11 years for 74 and 22 years for 85. The way things are going lately it might be a stretch just to reach 70. My wife saw me typing this and said, "knock on wood" while she was knocking on my skull.

    By coincidence, today is (would have been) my mom's 91st birthday. I'll be 62 in Feb so not far behind you.

    Well, that's what she would have been, if still alive. However, I did have 3 grandparents who lived until they were 94 and 95. My dad's dad died before I was born in 1948 at the age of 54 due to complications of high blood pressure - the "silent killer" - a disease they didn't know much about back then.

    Looks like you may have quite a few years left. My mom died in March 1984 @ 66 emphysema my step dad died 11 months later @ 71 cause unknown one of the doctors said could have been from a broken heart. I have no idea who my real father is so that's one part of my history that will remain in the dark forever as I do not have any family alive.

    Maybe. I have a lot of traits as my mother, so maybe not. My grandma died a couple months after my grandpa after being married for a couple months short of 75 years. She told her friends she was tired and was going to take a nap - never woke up. That's the way to go.

    Anyway - I think we have driven this thread about as far OT as it can get. Sorry about that g.watson.
