Don't be sad, just appreciate the time you get to spend together.
My brother was only fifty one when he died over twenty three years ago. I truly miss the time we didn't have.
My Dad and Mom have been gone for more than twenty years ago. Nothing hits you like when your parents die.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” ― Samuel Adams
