I've always wondered why some humans outlive/live longer than others. Sure there are the
usual reasons.....accident, disease, old age. And then there are the unusual reasons.....
sudden death with no apparent cause, suicide, war and murder. How we die is pretty much
a 'crap-shoot' as far as I am concerned. You are probably wondering where the hell I am
going with all this talk of death! But since we are all headed in that direction from the day
we are born and since we, Ron and I, have experienced this first hand in the past couple of months with
the death of our friend Cathy, and that of a longtime colleague of mine, the fact that my Dad has pretty well outlived everyone he knew from his generation, and the sister of a blogger
we follow and, lastly, on Tuesday when I got to my Dad's he mentioned the death of a
16 year old boy from the local high school, the one at which I worked recently.
He was a student of mine. He died last Friday. I will go to his funeral today.
