Common cause of death nicely put

The family of the late Eva L. Grover, widow of a Methodist minister, used an interesting choice of words in the obit that appeared in today's (July 2, 2010) Medina County Gazette in Medina, Ohio, to explain how she died.

Eva L. Grover, 81, stepped into eternity peacefully, Wednesday, June 30, 2010, at West View Manor in Woos­ter, after a valiant fight with the kind of things that just make our bodies quit on us when we get on in years.
