I just lost a good friend

A WW2 veteran that was in his 80's. He had a bout with cancer and a brain clot that did him in. I am glad it was not long a fight, I was very worried about how his widow would handle it but I am also glad he did not suffer too long. IMHO we just lost a national treasure. I just went fishing with him this last summer. I will say fair winds and following seas to my dearly departed comrade. God bless him and his family.

I am sorry for your loss as well. That truly was the greatest generation. My father was among them.
Sigh, Susan
