To Tom's Famiy, I was deeply saddened to hear of your loss. When Barry told me about the bike accident prior to his passing I knew it was trouble. Head injuries can so easily become fatal for anyone at any age. But at 70 he was far to young to go. My words can only say that faster is better, lingering on and on with such a level of disability is incredibly sad. My both parents died in last 3 years, my mother at 89 lingered for 1.5 months, and my Dad, at 94, died more peacefully. Altho' unable to walk, he was in great nursing home,and still upbeat. He passed away very quickly of pneumonia last April. My sister has had Multiple Sclerosis since her late 20's, was stable for many years, declined slowly at first, more quickly after our mom passed. She was moved from her own apt of 45 yrs in Manhattan, to Massachusetts, where the loss of continuity of care came with severe and continuing loss of her many recent former capabilities. It is heartbreaking to watch and be powerless to change her prognosis. With that said, "Look for the Silver Lining": It was far too soon for Tom to go but going quickly is best. My heart and prayers go to your family.
