Alice Munkelt: Thanks for discussing the ‘great inevitable’

Thanks, Dick Tracy, for your column. I’m 99, but still around apparently to suffer the disorder now existent in our country.

Such a discussion is essential in as much as the medical community asks for info that requires the cooperation of your family or associates. If you have a “bucket list,” your family should be there to help.

My bucket list included a sky dive. Done at 94 years. Great fun.

No great desire to reach 100, but will not like leaving my two caring and capable sons. They are precious.

Again thanks.
