However, there is a more personal thing occurring. My mom always commented that Reagan was much like her dad. She would even tease her dad, "You're a lot like President Reagan, and I wouldn't want you in office either!" Well, I'm watching his funeral now, and they're going over his last moments.... and his final moments apparently paralleled my grandfather's as well. Even though my grandfather died of cancer, he also lost his self before he died.
It's very sad to watch another family go through that.
