Life is so uncertain. A woman I grew up with and knew very well died in her sleep a few days ago. She laid-down to take a nap and didn't wake up. Her daughter found her.
That's why I don't put much stock in life expectancy. There have been too many people I've known who died before the age of 50. I'm beginning to truly grasp the saying "lived each moment as if it were your last."
I know how you feel. One of my co workers died at 39 of colon cancer just a few months ago and my principal's daughter died at 16 of cancer. So we all should live each momment as if it were our last.
