    Thanks all I do appreciate it. Still kinda taken back that when you have a sibling that passes she was 59. Makes you evaluate your own approach to life. I quit chewing, limit my beers, and will not ignore physical ailments. I can't afford to die just yet, not so much about the $ it's the time I can't afford to lose.

    Rather unique position with my sister dying she was 1/3rd of the takeover of the family business, really have zero choice other to move on rapidly and recover and move on and to be honest we would all have the same attitude we have 40 plus people that rely on the fact that life goes on. Probably sounds a little cold but honestly you can not pause.

    Hard truth Sota.
    My father and mother are still alive. They do not own much $ wise$.
    I have a brother and a sister.
    When the time comes and they die (mom n dad) I will bet all I have there will be no infighting amongst us.
    None of us 3 ask or expect nothing. It will be a peaceful event.


    Oh, I might "fight abit" about dads 30_30:biggun:

    I had a discussion with my brother about the flag case in my sister's office. The flag was on my grandfathers casket I wanted it, my brother thought he should have it, had to remind him how I ended up with my grandfather's tacklebox and my brother was upset and I graciously gave it to him, time for him to return the favor.

    Might be nice to go to a Vet if either of you served.

    Unfortunately none of us have but I was the first wave that gladly registered for selective service on my 18th birthday, but above all I loved and admired my grandfather. He taught us all to make our children better than us.
