28. Death and sickness can occur at any age.
Wed Mar 27, 2024, 11:36 AM
Mar 27

My son never was sick and he was in good health until he died of glioblastma multiform brain tumor. He was at work and had his first seizures ever. He died 18 months later at age 26. My Husband was diagnosed with non Hodgkins lymphoma 3 months after our son was diagnosed. He died 18 months after our son died. He was age 54.. My grandfather died at 86 of a heart attack while he was getting dressed for work. They all had sound minds and no health problems until their end.

Biden has a sound and sane mind. I am 76. He is in better shape than me. America has prospered under Biden.

I say Trump is old too and keep repeating it. gab13by13 Mar 27 #1
