Your post hit home for so many reasons. Got all teary eyed before I had to run out and grab DD from preschool, so I had no time to reply earlier.Last November, we lost my grandfather. I can't believe it's nearly been a year already. Granted he was in his 80's, and had been progressively ill, but it still hit people hard.But related to this, my father is also 59. One day we were talking and he casually mentioned he'd been to his doctor and was getting "back on" (maintenance medication for a chronic issue that should be taken daily). Um, Dad, when did you stop taking it?? Geez! I'm 99% sure his refills ran out and he just never bothered to call the doctor about it, or schedule a physical to get them refilled.I am also currently pregnant. If the worst were to happen, DD is 4 and might remember him some. I lost great-grandparents around that age, and my memories are weak. But the little one still cooking would probably have no memories if a death were to occur in the next few years. :-(I totally understand mourning for yourselves as well as for the loss of what LJ will never know. Again, I'm so sorry for your loss.:-(DizChick
