I'm with you S_S!!!...Well said.
I lost my dad last year at 92 yo, body just finally gave out, no regrets, passed away peacefully. He deserved that. WWII Vet, 10nth mountain division...a real hero, but would never think of himself that way.
We'll enjoy a cookout, have some fun with family and friends (including my mom who's doing great at 95) and remember why we can.
