Sadly, it was inevitable. She was far too sick to even get better, so we depressingly waited for about a week and a half for her to pass. I'll tell you what though, she was a fighter. She has been through 2 heart attacks, congestive heart failure, irregular heart beat, 3 strokes, COPD, Emphysema, asthma, and many more things. She was actually a very healthy person my Dad said until about 1986 when she had her first heart attack, then after that she progressively got worse. She would smoke alot, but when my grandfather commited suicide in 1981, she became a heavy smoker and drank whiskey heavily. Heck, my Dad said she used to chase him down the street when he skipped school when she was 45!

And sadly....what caused all this?


Smoking. I am so glad I am not a smoker, such a terrible habit that leads to nothing but health problems and eventual death. She only drank from 81-86, then stopped.

I quit for about 3 months, things got stressful and i ended up buying a pack of cigarettes and its downhill from their(my current state). My father passed away 2 years ago when i was only 17. As you may have guessed...smoking caused this situation. His last words that he spoke was, Please don't smoke...and begged me to agree i would not. Battled the cancer for 2 years. All went well and the recovery was looking very optimistic, until they discovered the brain tumor. I really do miss him, have never met a better person. I am very sorry for your loss and will keep you in mind when giving a prayer. Stay strong at heart and you WILL overcome these fictional barriers.
