Death and excellent lines

My grandfather died this past week. Upon being told, his 95-year-old sister, my Auntie Betty, said, "Ahhhh... Now the rot sets in." Referring, presumably, to the fact that somehow she, he and their brother George had all lived well into their nineties. Pretty chilling, huh?
My grandfather's last words were slightly less poetic but nevertheless fairly dramatic:
"Who're you!?!"

Wow...really sorry to hear about your grandfather, my condolences to you and your family but at least he lived a very full if not long life. On that note, I am going to England at the end of December to celebrate my grandmother's 90th, I only hope I live to be that old.

"Famous last words" is one of my dad's favorite expressions. He also enjoys saying "six of one, half a dozen of the other" and "hold your horses." I think all three would make excellent final statements. Sassy's parting words: "should have used the preview option" reminds us to never have any regrets.
