Any Regrets?

I ran into my sidewalk friend Kevin. I hadn't seen him in a while. He's lost a lot of weight. "I was diagnosed with cancer in March," he said. He lives in the gigantic stone apartment house. "It used to be brothel," he told me, smiling.
"A man asked me while I we were in the VA hospital, 'Any regrets?' Hell no, why should I, I said. I served my country, loved my work as a fireman, I saw the grand canyon and the world series, and I've been to Las Vegas and Disney a few times. No regrets except I never got married and had a family, but it's not really a regret just a path I didn't take."
