I think the worst thing about getting older is seeing friends and family dying. My grand parents are long gone, most of my aunts uncles and some of my cousins are gone. I have not lost many friends yet but its coming.
I’ve lost lots of relatives that I didn’t really know that well. My mom and dad knew them because they were older and we lost like 15 in a 17 month span. Losing friends is the toughest IMO. Just lost a friend 2 yrs older than me to cancer in early Nov. Working in public schools for 22 years, not a year goes by that we don’t at least lose one or more members of our student body or recently graduated students and it’s never easy. Never easy when it’s kids or young people.
