My wifes Grandpa has been having issues with his kidneys. He was trampled by his livestock (bovine) two years ago and it all started from there. He is a great man. His kidneys are only functioning at 5% and he has decided to for go treatment. He is 86 and knows that he has lived a full life and knows where he is headed.

He has farmed our land down in Warsaw for 60 years. He still did all the hay this summer after all that he had been through. He is a Army vet that was in the Great War and has all the medals to prove it.

Old School "real" man that will be missed. God is getting a fine one his way soon.

He sounds like a lot of the "greatest generation" that I have been privileged to know. We are losing them to quickly now.

I pray that his last days can be comfortable.

Sorry to hear this, sounds like your gonna lose a great example of how to live your life.

I can't blame him for not doing the dialisis thing. My wife works in this field and the treatments suck.

Ted hit on the head... Sucks for us left behind but it is the cycle we are dealt, doesn't mean we have to like..... Hope he has a dignified end.....

Sorry to hear this Charles. Ohiosam nailed it. Couldn't say any more than what has been said. Sounds like a great example to live by.

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers guys. My wife is crushed. Even though we new it was coming sooner rather than later. She spent every summer there.
