The mother of one of our cute little 3 year preschool girls told me that this weekend they were in line at Target shopping. They got behind an elderly lady who was very frail and thin and leaning on a younger woman to walk. Her daughter asked very loudly "Mom, is she DEAD?" It reminded me of one Thanksgiving several years ago when my youngest son was about 8 or 9 years old. We were talking about everyone's age and he asked my mom (his grandma) how old she was. When she told him he said very seriously "Wow, you must be almost dead." We have never forgotten that and still tell mom that she is "almost dead"!
