Kind of bummed out today

My neighbor died last night. Heart attack. He didn't quite make it to 66. I shouldn't feel too bad. He lived two life times in one. It's just that creepy feeling knowing he isn't there. He was like Billy (Spirits Doings). He knew how to fix just about anything. He taught me a lot about how things worked and the little tricks to repair them. He did some nasty things in his life and some good things too. I guess that's what makes up a lifetime when it's all said and done. RIP Mike

Rest is peace! Sorry to hear that. I have been hearing of so many friends dying in their 50s and 60s. A kid I grew up with just died after suffering a massive heart attack on the way to work. Adds a new perspective to upping the retirement age because we are living so long.

Sorry to hear that, Demeur. Tough to lose people you are close to, either proximity or personally. Harder still when it is both.

I lost a friend yesterday too. Same age as me. Fell down stairs and died of head injury.

One of the hazards of getting older, I guess. We are still here and others have gone on.

Bummer. My sympathies.

Sorry for you loss. As hard as it is to hear, at least he didn't suffer to much. Many suffer months and years before they succumb.

Sorry, Demeur. I know how something like that can really knock a person off their feet.

RIP Mike...

Not a clue why I'm still going, maybe cuz I haven't done any nasty things yet and have to get that out of the way.

Let's see, what can I blow up besides all the religions and governments.

There's only one way to leave this rock.

Knowing that you are going to create your heaven, or next level of experience and existence, or however you want to look at it.

Let me add sincere sympathies, Demeur. I think comfort lies in knowing your neighbor "lived two life times in one." Sadly, many seem to not quite manage one.

Well hell, that sucks. Condolences, sir.
