    Itxi, sometimes we are kinder to our treasured pets when we put them down............but it's always so damn hard!!! I respect you!

    I hope you feel the Umbrella of prayers, it's like a little shelter.

    Still PRAYING!

Went from rehab right into hospice.
    Kind of sad, but he didn't want to just occupy space in pain and discomfort. My dad did pretty much the same thing.
    Not fair.

    I'm sorry I ratted you out Itxi but figure everybody here is good friends and got the rights to know whats happening with other friends.
    If you want to come on up and give me an arse whoopin, I'll take it with a song in my heart and a smile on my face, and I won't fight back.

    Bring it.
    No worries, Col. I'm just not one of those who wants to create big fuss over my ownself. When I finally retired and walked out the door after almost 55 years in the intelligence business almost no one knew I was leaving. I had a flexible, part time schedule at that point and the day I left when our admin assistant asked when I would be back I just told her "Never" and dropped my badge in the visitor badge box on my way out the door. That was so, so cool to be able to pull off! My retirement from life plans are much the same...cremation, no funeral, no memorial service. And I trust my wife to pull that one off.

    All that said, this thread has been a good thing for me. This outpouring of support, kind words, and sympathies has been quite moving and uplifting and I want thank all again for it.

    Offering up prayers for you sir. Although I'm not yet ready to retire (old now, but too young for that) I like your exit plan. Little fuss was made me coming into the place, it should be about the same on exit.

    Life can be that way too. When you've lived you life on your own terms at every step, then stepping thru to the other side is done with confidence and satisfaction. Make those steps as only you see fit sir.

    May the good lord bless you and keep you and we will all keep praying for you to have good days and smooth seas.

    Peace
    I was once asked if I was "a paranoid for carrying my Kahr".
    "Nope" I said, "just prepared".
    " prepared for what" he asked?
    "more stuff than you are"

    Thanks Bawanna for "ratting out" Itxi . We are all better off with the knowledge of what is going on in his life. He has been a great contributor over the years.
    Smooth sailing Itxi. You have a lot of class. When My time comes I hope I can recall your words.

    Now I gotta finish out my days labeled as a rat. Oh well, I'd do it again.

    I agree on all counts, great member and lots of class. Penchant for small mammary glands.
