I guess being a boomer means more of this, more often. He was the healthy one, I thought. He used to do like Bally's fitness commercials. They say he had Rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia at 67. Sounds like a miserable finish to an exceptional life. I always enjoyed the Eagles.............................Dave

    I know

    I just read that as well. 

    Seeing so many passing with Cancre does a number on the psyche to see so many fall to this disease. 

    It sounds like he had a real struggle with his health at the end. Bless him!

    It is funny

      My brother has had chronic ulcerative coloitis and proctitis for over forty years. We complain about having a scope . He has one pretty welll every year. He has been fortunate that a fairly low key drug called sulfasalazine worked for him and has kept him in reasonable condition (He  is now over 70).  He started seeing a new doctor recently. He read my brothers meical history and asked how come you are still alive. It was the first time my brother realised how serious his illness was. Sad and horrible way for Glen to go, Ron.
