As I grow older and older, I’m coming to realize I’m getting more and more like elderly people I’ve known through the years. I wonder — to myself and out loud — what will happen to my family when I’m gone? How will they get along without the old man in this ever-challenging world? And,...

It was just after seven o’clock in the morning and my two Shih Tzu pals, George and Gracie, were taking me for my first walk of the day. That’s customary. It happens every morning before breakfast.
