    Re: Earning My E-Ticket in 10 words or more.

    I know what you mean; my wife was 47. It was 8 years ago.

    But she did indeed have a mostly good life. For that I'm thankful.

    Re: Earning My E-Ticket in 10 words or more.

    My friend flew to Anaheim on a Tuesday to attend his mother's funeral. He died the next day. I attended his mother's funeral on Thursday, and his on Friday.

    Life can be cruel. I still go by his grave and talk with him. Then I FB his daughter and tell her how much he misses her. That seems to comfort her.

    Talking about it does help, especially in the early stages.

    I try and remember to express my feelings of love when I can. One never knows what tomorrow may bring.

    It is!

    My friends mom took me to so many places when I was young and I kind of took her for granted. When I became an adult, I heard she was sick and I paid her a visit. I told her how important she was to me and that I was truly blessed to have had her in my life.

    I attended her funeral two weeks later.

    Re: Earning My E-Ticket in 10 words or more.

    My dad was a very quiet person. He never said much, not even to his family. I never heard the words, "I Love You" from him, but I knew it, because of the way he lived his life and took care of his family. I remember how he would dress us up, and take us to his workplace and show us off when we were young children. I was one of four.

    I also remember once when I was very young, and he had worked late at a Banquet. My dad was a waiter. Anyway, my mom said "your father is home", and I ran toward him, and hugged him. I remember his response as being surprised and uncomfortable.

    So hugs and kisses were not part of my childhood. When I met my husband's family, they were the total opposite. Lots of hugs and kisses. I soon adjusted, and became a lot more outgoing. Even though basically, I am a private, introvert like my dad.

    Like a lot of families in the 60s, there wasn't much affection when I was growing up. But there was never a question that I was deeply loved.

    There was a lot of affection when my kids were growing up. And they knew they were loved too.

    We weren't a huggable family either.

    I think a lot of families back in the 50s and 60s didn't show much affection.

    Maybe just the standard of the times.

    They also didn't advertise personal stuff in their families, the way people do today.

    That's the truth. People kept quiet about their troubles and didn't go on a talk show to announce it to the rest of the world.

    Sometimes, even the commercials on television make me blush. Not to mention the language that is commonplace in the world today.

    My son says, I am way too old fashioned.

    High standards are never old fashioned.

    This is true!

    And sadly, high standards are pretty rare these days.
