Mensagem:  Recently, I was reading a text and I found the following statement:

"My father died in 1970. Had he lived, he'd be much different today than he was then."

I'm a begginer, so I think that I can rewrite the above phrase in that way:

"My Father died in 1970. If he didn't, he'd be much different today than he was then."

is this OK ?

i'm a begginer.. sorry for my terrible english... and please, correct me !
