FWIW: Today Is The 7th Anniversary Of My Mother's Death

Mostly, it was cigarettes that killed her, even though she quit 10 years before her passing. She was about a month and a half short of her 79th birthday. My father outlived her by 375 days, and his death was caused by Congestive, Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, too. He was 2 months past his 82nd birthday. The photo was taken at Dad's retirement, in '86; she's holding a cigarette...
I smoked tobacco for 35 years, myself, before quitting in 1994. So some part of that fate awaits me as well.

Fucking cigarettes!!!
