Too long a life


Pa Joe had lived a long healthy life; he had witnessed the births of all his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He had lost his wife, friends and acquaintances. Not because they were ill or died in accidents, but because they were too old to live much longer.
Pa Joe knew he had too long a life; his sight was sharp, his heart healthy, but he knew he lived too long. Since his great grandchild was having a baby.
