As we get older we know that we will be losing friends and family. Even though we know this is coming, we are never prepared for this. A good friend of mine passed away this morning when he was in the hospital having a routine operation. We were friends for 60 years and he was married to one of my girlfriends for 40 years. I will miss him but will always remember him with a smile on my face. He was a great person and made me laugh so many times. We will meet again......

Thanks. It is scary when you see some of your long time friends passing away. It reminds us of how long we have been here and wonder how much time we have left.

Thank you. There is a positive side to this as so many friends from my life have already called me. I haven't spoken to some of them in years.

That's very sad. My condolences to you. There seems to have been more people recently who are dying before coming out of surgery.

You are right. I think it is better than having loved ones suffer through life but the people left are shocked.
