I’m sorry to hear about your father, Glenn. Its so hard to see someone you love suffer with an awful illness. Death truly is a blessing for them. They’re free of the pain and ordeal of dealing with such illness.

My sister passed away in November, right before Thanksgiving. She was sick with heart and artery problems for years. She lived life despite that, but she was losing the battle in 2018. I miss her, but I’m glad her pain and ordeal is over.

Thanks again, guys.

2018 (last half) was the most difficult for me personally…. but for Mom I’d say it was the last 2-3 years. The medications slowly increased in numbers (more meds to take) and frequency (how many times a day). She also had to drive Pops to various appointments twice each week for about 5yrs. She didn’t like our local hospital, but it was preferable to those 20+ miles away.

Mom hates driving in big cities like St. Louis. Me…. it’s child’s play. I’ve driven the 405 fwy in *rush hour* on a Friday afternoon in Los Angeles many times over the years. Highways around this area don’t *faze* me one bit.

So…. any time Pops had to go to one of those *big hospitals* in St. Louis, she had either my brother or one of Dad’s brothers do the driving.
