    We've most enjoyed your company, Slowpoke.

    Very sorry to hear those words, spoken in this way. Almost 38 years exactly, since my grandfather got those same words. The sense of powerlessness is pervasive. It reminds us so, we have but one go round on this planet. It has been a privilege to have made your acquaintance, Sir.

    Slowpoke, you don't know me and I don't know you but if I may, I would like to share a quote with you by C. L. Clark.

    "You do not have a soul
    You are a soul
    You have a body."

    May God bless you abundantly.

    God bless and I can only imagine the great life you have lead. 60 years together with a guitar player - now that’s a love song and possible movie!

    Oh heaven's this is sad, as I find myself becoming the older generation because my seniors move on to the next place, and that place keeps moving closer to where I am.

    My old Mother made 83, before moving on.
    On her last day I took her to the library, then washed her hair that evening.

    Weary we grow with living in the hardships of old age, even as it is sad to move on, and as we may fear the last new experience of life.

    I hope your next move is peaceful @Slowpoke , and that your family can manage their grief in this sad transition.
    Of course you will stay in their hearts and thoughts, as my Mother still lives in mine.

    Brave lad. No one really wants to go, but doing it at home with your life partner by your side seems like the right way to deal with your fate. I wish you both peace.

    That's hard news, I hope whatever time you have left is spent in relative comfort, surrounded by loved ones.

    May God bless you and keep you, may he also place his hand on your wife to comfort her during this time.
