The Price of Gas, Death and Taxes

By | 2013-02-19

I attended my uncle’s funeral today, he died this past Valentine’s Day at 86.

A story told during his eulogy was about one of the pieces of wisdom he liked to pass on to his grand-kids. He’d tell them to stop complaining about the price of gas, when a tank of gas is worth a day’s wages (like when he was their age) then they have something to complain about.

Pete Hildebrand, March 11, 1926 to Feb. 14, 2013.
