My father-in-law, a Vietnam Air Force Veteran, was lying in a hospital bed dying. For the 17 years that I knew him, I saw Richard Grenier suffer from what he believed was over-exposure to Agent Orange. His circulation system was failing him and both of his legs were amputated. He had multiple surgeries to try to sustain blood flow to his extremities, but ultimately there was nothing left to do. What would crush the spirit of many men didn’t crush him, though. He always had a smile on his face and was SO good to my kids. It was sad to see this man decline from being an avid golfer so someone who couldn’t do much at all.
