    Kij,
    Thanks for sharing these personal thoughts and impressions. My dad died in 1997. Mom is in nursing care the past two years after living independently for perhaps too long. She will be 94 in October.
    Hope to keep in touch with you.

    Chuck and I have talked at great length of late about the thought that “just because I’m related to you doesn’t mean you are my friend.” It is a thought that giving me some peace, especially thinking about a difficult relationship with my mother which was much worse at the end so it will be my memory of her. The other trite little saying that helped was “it’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.” The good news is that you and I both seem to do that when required.

    For what it is worth, from among your friends, I can honestly report that Kathy and I are doing reasonably well. I wish you the same.
