    I can relate a bit – my dad died in December, and he was only 72 (and mostly confined to a chair). The difference there was that he wouldn’t let me help. Very sad … we just had the memorial service for him on April 28th. Thanks for sharing this … I laughed despite the sad subject matter.

  3. Jeff says:

    Thanks for this.

    Totally right on, I’m in Joe’s spot right now.

  5. Rob Lamb says:

    Been there and Joe captures it perfectly – the trapped between 2 snoring parents is an amazing image and also hilarious. Make that book!
