G-Man prepares for his twilight years

-A A +A
By John Heidtke, Guest Columnist

My dear spouse, Penny, recently suggested I write my obituary. It followed a detailed discussion about burial versus reducing our remains to ashes. Her 94-year-old father’s wishes are clear, so she thinks we ought to follow suit. Time is growing short, seeing how she is turning a trim 70 and I a geezerly 76.

Nationally, the average life span is 78.6 years. In Brunswick County, residents 65 and older account for 24.3 percent of the population. My spouse and I are not alone in the need to lay some important groundwork regarding the quality of our futures.
