My dear Marco. I think you are
exaggerating. Never in my long life have I ever met anyone from such a

Hello, dear Gerry!
My father died two years ago. He was 89. My
mother is still alive. She is 74. All my uncles and aunts died out without
offspring. The man I call "my brother" is a blood-brother, not genetically
related with me. Three months ago I was present at the cremation of a II
degree cousin, that had no offspring. Other two cousins still live in
Piedmont, but they are more acquainted with goats than with women. No
offsprings. I chose to have no offsprings. So when I will die my genetic
line will be extinct forever.
