But she has a lot of health issues. We don't know how hard it is to get that old yet!
My grandfather is 91 (92 in July) and is always talking about dying. I used to tell him I didn't want to hear that kind of talk. About a year ago, I had a revelation that he may need to talk about it...so now I just listen. He has multiple health issues and I think he is hanging on to make sure that my grandmother is taken care of.
I agree, we just don't know how hard it is to get to that age.
