as i do about younger ones.
my great-grandfather died at age 97 from aneurysm suffered while he was in church. he died suddenly and felt no pain. he'd lived a long life and was healthy. he had a wife at home where he still took care of himself. he was in church - his favorite activity. his death wasn't a particularly sad occasion for me. i was sad for his wife but that's really about it. his kids were hurt a bit b/c they'd miss their father - but they're senior citizens themselves. this was the order of things - he was SUPPOSED to die and the way he went out was just about perfect. i barely cried or felt any sadness.
