I just lost two friends and I was thinking why oh why am I surrounded by so much death. Then I really thought about my life and the exposure I’ve had and honestly it really hasn’t been very much. My first exposure was at about 5 when my grammy died. Then maybe 15 years later my friends father died. A few years later a coworker died. Then my mom died. Then a gal here at the complex died, And now two more folks at the complex. That’s not a lot of death. My sister has lost like 8 people in the last 2 years she says.
I think as you get older, you’ll have to deal with it more and more. That’s the disadvantage of getting old. Everyone around you dies.
Death is as natural as birth. Just have to try to be at peace with it.
