My son has been asking about my side of the family am I've been looking into it.

It's sad, but true. I guess I'll have to be the first.

72 is our magical #. Is there a pattern of an illness that takes your families lives so early?

No, just genes and luck.

Both of my grandmas died at 75. My husband's grandma also died at 75. Seems like the number of death in my family. But I've also had two great grandmas live into their 90s.

We get old. 100 is not uncommon. Most live at home on their own well into their 90s.
