Thank you for your kind words. A few of my friends have suggested I write a book about my experiences over the years with pc. I wish I would have thought to keep a journal as it would have made it much easier to chronicle this long and strange trip. I've had more than a few laughs along the way and have learned a lot as well. It has been a life-changing event in so many ways.
I am sorry to hear that your dad passed away but it is comforting to know that he died peacefully, from what you shared, and that even so close to his death he was able to do what made him happiest. What a gift that is. My grandma lived with us (we own a two-family home and we had her move in upstairs) and she died in her sleep. I was the one who had to walk upstairs one morning, suspecting that she had died. At the time it was very traumatic for me but in hindsight I know how truly blessed she was. She was 83, in relatively good health, and still independent (and driving like a bat out of hell!) Too bad I didn't get more of her genes!
It's such a small world. I live in Rockford but was born in Elmhurst and
lived there for 18 years. Have been to Joliet a few times. Take care. - robin
