    60 years with your wife? There can be no greater love than that which you two have.

    I can't tell you what I'd do in your place but we are all headed in that direction. Save me a seat. I admire your candor and courage.

    It sounds like you deserve much better company than what the bunch of us here can offer, but if you happen to be here longer than you initially thought, check back in on us when you can. We'd love to hear from you again. If not, well, good night and sweet dreams.

    It is hard to offer anything other than what seems trite written from a computer forum under the circumstances. I don't know what to say other than I hope you enjoyed your time bonding with folks here and your time in this life. It seems so fruitless to offer anything further, as if we were saying goodbye for the day, see you tomorrow.

    I hope you receive my thoughts through the ether, and your guitar awaits you across the rainbow bridge. You are not alone in your journey, we are all on the same path together.

    I'm so very sorry, my friend. Very sad for you and your family. And, I wish you the most peaceful, comfortable transition possible. You are about to go through what we ALL will go through.

    May God bless you and keep you.

    I pray that there will be no pause whatsoever between your last moment in this body and your soul's first moment in the unimaginable splendor of God's kingdom, where you may live in bliss, eternally.

    If you are on good terms with the Lord, may he take you and keep you in His glorious arms, for all time and eternity.

    And, Slowpoke, I hope to meet up with you in that glorious kingdom beyond this finite world.

    Bless you and your wife Slowpoke. You've had a long run and a good with your love beside you right until the end.
    I wish you joy in the remaining days of your life, a peaceful passing, and that you may find yourself in a better place, reunited with your loved ones when the time will come.
    We'll all tread this path. I hope we can do so with the same serenity as you.
    Godspeed!
