I'm sad and sorry for your loss, medtran. Like Kayelle mentioned, no matter what your age, when parents are all gone and you're an "orphan", it hurts like the dickens.

Thanks guys and yeah it hit harder than I expected. I was an only, no siblings. I knew he wasn't going to be around much longer, he'd just turned 90 two weeks prior, had dementia and had been on a rapid decline the last month or so. At least I got to see him a couple of months ago before the dementia totally took him away. He lived almost 1000 miles away so I didn't get to see him as often as I would have liked.

CG, you are right. My mom just passed at 102, and it still hurts.

Medtran, just saw this. So sorry for your loss.

"Alice" hasn't logged into DC since she created this thread. I hope things didn't get TOO bad!

There are plenty boys on this forum too Alice, unless your comment was directed at girls only?

Probably a BOT. Troll type post it seems.

I bought a turkey yesterday in Walmart and it was definitely fresh. It looked and smelled good. But after dinner my whole family except me (because i'm a vegetarian,) were poisoned. My son Robert got in the hospital and he's still there! I don't know what to do!
I hope all is well by now, but Alice previously said her kids were named Jackie and Stan.

That should always be a given on any forum.

That's a possibility.Remember don't feed the Trolls.

The way I see it is if a newbie asks a question.Is given an answer and never replies back or is seen of again, in any way around here.Troll is written all over that post.
I don't waste my time with them.
