Life Or Something Like It

Woke up EARLY Saturday morning by being told that my uncle had passed away. Of course I was saddened by this - but I was glad that he was no longer suffering, as he had been battling lung cancer/emphysema for many years. That makes two children out of seven that my grandmother has outlived. She also has outlived one husband (her last one), and an ex-husband. She has Parkinson's badly, and it is all I can do to see her any more. It breaks my heart to see her.

There is something about a death in the family that makes you appreciate being alive. It makes things simple - none of the materialistic things matter at that point.

After all, you can't take it with you.
