|Carman, Alan, and Paul -Second Set Score 4-4|
In reflection on living to be over 90 it is good to do so if the quality of life remains high. This past week one of my former and long time colleagues at the university passed away at age 94. Up until a few years ago he remained active enough to continue to square dance - a life long pleasure in his life. Recent years were not so kind to him, but his loving wife along with additional caregivers gave him a good quality of care and comfort in a home setting. A blessing to have expired in his own home.
As I age, I am surprised about how many of my acquaintances and colleagues at the university and in the community have reached or exceeded 90. I enjoy their stories and wisdom and admire their continued contributions to the richness of our society. Would it be that we all could age as gracefully as these folks.
