Pack Of Cigarettes

Here is pack of cigarettes at my mom’s house in Cincinnati that my late father opened and started, but will not finish.

  1. My father died back in 1990 from smoking related issues at age 73. He called me for help late at night as he gasped his last breathes. By the the time I and the EMT people got to his home he was slumped in his chair where he usually smoked. They were unable to revive him as they rushed him to the hospital. Cigarette ashes and butts were all over the floor next to the chair that had fallen from the ash tray by it.

    Your picture with the pack in an empty ash tray might serve one day as a symbol for those who will one day look back from a time when maybe no one smokes anymore and recall a time in history when so many engaged in a habit that contributed to their own demise.
