I dont know that I'd call living to 90 sad. He had a very impressive life and should be remembered for both his military service and his postwar career where many people know of him for his part in the Sirhan Sirhan prosecution.

Sad news. Full life though...with quite a lot of "goodness" in it.

My grandma turns 102 this summer and she's still really alert.

I remember 2 years ago when she came semi-running with her walker.
We asked her "where have you been?"
She said "I was at the old folks home, singing songs to the elderly."
