Tess, sometimes your perspective on others lives leaves me in awe and gratitude. What a wonderful blog. Thank you for approaching his life with grace and accepting him as human. I, for one am sad he is gone. My mother, well she is devastated!

You know, my take on the cigs was that he knew he was terminal and that in the end, the time that he'd gain back from stopping smoking wasn't time that would have been "well spent" given how sick pancreatic cancer can be in the end. Also, that it may have felt better to have the comfort of the familiar smoke to a man who didn't know what was coming in the days and nights before him.

That reasoning is from a person who is emphatically anti-smoking. Pathalogically so, in fact.
