My first wife was quality thru and thru. Unforch, she had a stroke and 
died in '68 at 34 yoa. And the 3 children she so enthusiastically gave 
me, 2 girls and a boy, have since passed, the girls from cancer, and the 
boy tried to play mumbledipeg with a kia while filled up on alcohol just 
2 years ago.

The next one wasn't quality and after 17 years, we tore it up. She came 
with 3, only one survives today, MD took the older 2 at about 30 yo.

And I still have the three boys she gave me. They don't tolerate her 

This one was a 49 yo old maid when we said our I do's.  Now she's 78, and 
I'm 83. And I've had my 10 minute warning buzzer, a pulmonary embolism 4 
years back that the slew of docs who were watching me and telling me how 
lucky I was as those are about 95% fatal.  I sure can't recommend it as 
a way to die. 

But I'm still here, and putting in my $0.02 occasionally.
