Also, PDM. You are quite correct about the unbearable health problems and about the quality of life.

I cannot imagine wanting to hold onto life if I cannot think or interact.

And yet, despite what I think (or believe about an after-life), something within most of us holds onto life.

It's like the country & western song says, "I wanna go to heaven, but I don't wanna go today."

So I guess we have to think about what our loved ones should do if we are unable to make a medical decision. Of course, there are problems, even, with that, as well.

But the New Year has just begun, so let's get back to the friendship. Should Auld Acquaintances be forgotten?

New people on here introduce themselves, and we interact, and it is nice. Some we remember and wonder about who no longer post. But some drop in every now and then. And that's nice, too.

Marge is the love of my life.
