My friend died at 41

I have a friend who recently died at age 41. Four months ago, two elementary grades classmates of mine died at 38. . . This is quite alarming for me. It shows that the average life of a person is getting younger. Their deaths always remind me to be careful with what I eat and to have a stress-free life.

"I got 4 other brothersand one sister which don't bother with me." .. I don't understand what you mean by "which don't bother me". . . Are you not in speaking terms?

I heard it's the other way around here People don't die as early as before medical technology is as advance as now especially in the countries where health care is provided

That is scary, although when the government health care goes into effect, I would bet we will see it become even less. It is sad.

I really hate to hear that my friend. It's alarming to me too. That is very young. I think your right about needing to really care about what we eat and keep our stress at the lowest we can.

it's really very alarming. The food that we eat, the lifestyle that we have and the activities that we have are some of the factors that we should be very careful of. Let's avoid streesful life, avoid eating unhealthy foods and we must live healthy and happily.

I think you have just hit a bad patch, the life span average is 78 years in the US. But don't let that stop you from taking good care of yourself, you want that 78 years to be healthy ones. Blessings

How I wish to live up to that age and be healthy always too. Taking care of ourselves while we are still young is very important so we won't get sick. . Stay healthy always.

Life is really too short. It is best that we have to embrace every moment of it.

Hi, I'm sorry for your loss. I'm 48 and some of my friends have past already too. It makes you realize how short this life really is and how much we should appreciate what we have. Take Care!

Am so sorry to hear you lost a friend at 41. That's young. Also that you lost two classmates at 38. Makes a person wonder why some leave so young and others are here until their late 80's or 90's. I always try to live a stress free life. Doesn't always go that way but I try. Am retired now so my time is my own unless I am babysitting our grandbaby but that's not stressful. It's my fun time.
