A Few Things  
Been reading some of the articles about Larry Hagman, and you don't see married for sixty years very often, especially in Hollywood. What also stands out is that he, Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy really were best friends for 35 years. It wasn't just publicist 'friends'. They were both at his bedside when he died. And last, his son is my age, and he was a few years younger than my father. I'm that age now, where people your parents age are dying. The harsh reality of getting older. Not trying to be morbid, it's just something I've been thinking a lot about.

Indeed. My father was buried 9 years ago today on what would have been my parent's 50th wedding anniversary.

Married for 60 years. That sounds so intimidating.

People's parents dying is always a jarring thing. It's hard to come up with comfort for something like that.
