A class mate died this morning

India
February 1, 2013 5:53am CST
We studied together in the same school and passed high school certificate examination in 1962. We the “1962” batch mates attend a picnic and get together every year, non-stop since 1972; in the last week of December with family members. Similarly we attend social functions like marriage etc in this extended family; [b]such get together is essential, it ties not only us but our kids and grand kids together. [/b] One of the classmates informed me about the sad demise of this friend in my home city at 9am; the funeral was held at 4 pm today. I felt so sad, if I were there I would have attended the funeral and visit his family to pay condolences. [b]Every winter one or two of my class mates, all are 67 years young die; most have health issues. Life is really short but death is a reality; we have to face it boldly. What is your view?[/b] Please comments on this please. Thanks in advance. Professor Dr. B.Saraf. PhD. Cheers have a lucky day ahead. [i][/i][u][/u]

Anyone can. We just need to be aware of the things we should avoid doing and be diligent in eating healthy food only.

Yes uncle life is really short and I think no time for fighting because nobody knows what will happen in next moment. Our Kumbh mela plan is cancelled and Sai baba program is also finished. I enjoy last full week and happy but this week feel sad and crying because last night my hubby said he is not ready to go there and our all plan is cancelled.

Soory to hear about your friend professor. But sometimes, when one is laden with various sickness and it causes him so much pain physically, dying can be a welcomed one. So professor, try to live healthily, so you can have many, many , many more years to live and share with us all here at Mylot always.

Yes, life seems so short, so we should cherish every moment we are with our loved ones. Me, I do not complicate much my life. Though sometimes, I feel like complaining why like this and like that, but at the end of the day, I realized life is too short to complain so if there really is a time then I make sure that I spend the day happily and thankful.
