Thanks dear friend. It happened so fast (kidneys) and it feels like a punch in the gut, but he's at ease now. Thanks.

I'm so sorry ... it's so sad when it happens and yet I'm glad it was fast. Take care of you.

Thank you, Di, ;0. We toasted his memory at dinner last evening and just feel happy he'd been with us so long and relieved he was out of his pain.

I ran across this quote last week; sorry to have a use for it so soon :(

We who choose to surround ourselves
with lives even more temporary than our
own, live within a fragile circle;
easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps,
we would still live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only
certain immortality, never fully
understanding the necessary plan.

-Irving Townsend

Hugs all around to the McCoys...
