My mother had passed ten years ago, most of his friends had passed before him.
My comfort comes from knowing that they're all reunited.


My sincere condolences.

Condolences EPP. 89 is a helluva run, but I know that doesn't make it easier.

My condolences EPP. My Dad just turned 70 last year, and it's awful weird (and unpleasant) to start thinking about my parents' mortality. May he RIP.

My Dad passed away in 2011. There are still moments I sort of forget that he's gone and want to share something with him and am bummed out all over again.

Is 72 years old over / under how long you would you think the Marlboro man would have lived? A smoker since 14, I am going way over.

Marlboro man, Eric Lawson, dies from smoking-related disease


A smoker since age 14, Lawson later appeared in an anti-smoking commercial that parodied the Marlboro man and an "Entertainment Tonight" segment to discuss the negative effects of smoking. Susan said her husband was proud of the interview, even though he was smoking at the time and continued the habit until he was diagnosed with COPD.

"He knew the cigarettes had a hold on him," she said. "He knew, yet he still couldn't stop."
