This series of “mortality” posts was already in the planning stages when the following happened over the span of several months:
1. A friend of 30 years, just a few years my senior, committed suicide.
2. A former co-worker and neighbor, just a few years my junior, didn’t wake up one morning.
3. A friend of 36 years, almost exactly my age, died at work.
OK, I get it.
Life is short and precarious.
May all my other friends live well beyond their statistical life expectancy.
