AggieDave said it and I feel the same:

"Hey buddy, you've had a very rough time through the last 18 months. Remember that you have friends who love you and that you're a good person. I'm sorry for your loses. I'm proud to be able to consider you a friend. I hope that this year brings you more joy then the pain you've had to endure!"

Mike, you be 'da man.
My reality and yours are quite different.

I'm so sorry to hear of this. You and your family will be in my thoughts.

Jim passed away this morning (7 Jan) after suffering another heart attack while hospitalized for pneumonia.

I love you, bro - rest easy.

I am sorry Mike, none of us is going to get out of here alive.

None of us can take for granted that getting sick or having health problems is nothing to worry about.

You certainly have had your fair share of grief when it comes to family dying before old age takes them away.

I hope you can just remember when he was young and healthy and was happy.

Other than that, at least he did not wind up a veggie on a ventilator, that is like going to hell.

There is nothing you can do but be there for the rest of the family and console them, I guess it is your job to be the eldest now.

Thanks, everybody.

It's like his wife said - "By rights, he should have died two years ago (the original incident I posted), so at least we had two more years with him than we would have."

I'm trying to take what comfort I can from that.
I love you, Shannon and Jim.
