    Years ago, working E.R., I saw people of all ages die for various reasons. Even today, I remember the face of a 9 yr. old who drowned. That was my lesson on being immortal and I never forget it.Each day we live may very well be the future anniversary of the day we died. When someone told that to me, I stopped in my tracks. We truly don’t know when we will pass and that makes living each day that much more important. I agree that denial of death means denial of life.
