We have been to 8 funerals in this last year. From relatives to friends. I guess since we are in our 50s we are going to start seeing the herd thin out. My mom is 75 now and in bad health. His mom is 82 and in ok health. His aunt woke up one morning, keeled over and was gone before they could say "whats wrong?" she had a brain aneurysm let go and it took only moments for her to be in a coma. After the machines were unplugged it took all day for her to leave, but we are seeing more and more slide down that hill.
I have friends that are in their 30s that look awful! They smoke, drink, party, and their lives are so stressful. They look 60! I have friends who are 60 that dont smoke, drink and have an easy life and they look 40. Out of my graduating class of 200 there are only 50 something of them left. Car accidents, hunting accidents, drug over doses, diseases...3/4 gone!
I dont mind living to be old if I can be active and participate in my own life.
