    A legend. Everybody had a favorite Kirk Douglas movie back in the day. He lived a long and remarkable life and I pray that his loved ones will celebrate it instead of letting the grief of his passing overwhelm them.

    Being as my family has had many members live to be over 95 years old (and several over 100 just in my living memory, I'd venture to say, based on our own experience, that when someone has lived that long, the younger, surviving relatives are much more prepared for their relative's passing, and so, it is not nearly as tough on them as it is when someone much younger dies, and we feel like they were "cheated" or "shortchanged" out of having more good experiences , and we feel cheated out of being able to spend more quality time with them. When people finally pass on at over 100 years of age, it is most often not a terribly painful, and tragic death from a fast-growing cancer, or a tragic accident, like it is for many who die young. So, they are often tired, and ready to go, and many are relatively at peace, feeling that they've lived a long and good life. So, although I know that Kirk Douglas' sons and grandchildren will miss him very much, I don't think that they'll be devastated by not being able to be together with
    him anymore. We can't expect people to live an active, vibrant life much longer than 103-105 or so.

    I think they'll be celebrating that they had such a long time together with him. He had a terrible stroke many years ago and recovered from it to have many good years after. So, they probably feel very lucky he didn't die then.
