The great majority of people in their 60's, 70's and beyond are enjoying life and finding that it still has meaning and is rewarding. A good proportion of those people are, or have, coped with very serious illness, and even the combination of advancing age and illness has not prevented them from enjoying what life has to offer.
As Scott implied, it is depression which is robbing you of the ability to enjoy life, and yet you do not consult any pharmacologists who might offer real help, nor will you seek out a psychotherapist for help with the interpersonal stresses you have. It is very sad for those of us who have gotten to know you over the years to see you come to such negative decisions. There are many constructive things you could do, which have helped many people, and have a very good chance of helping you. Hard as it is for us to accept, it clearly looks like you are not even going to try any of them.
