    along with Mario Batalli the chef....I don't say classmates because RU is so big you wouldn't remember 1/3 of the people in your classes, if that, some were so huge....I won't get on his weight, because I lost 33 people intheir 50's this year and all were thin, one heart attack, another died during a cath, and a 3rd had astroke. All had other risk factors. Being alive is a known risk factor for dying.Rule of thumb for guys, if you get through your 50's ya got a shot at making it further. Today we buried a colleague at 46, brain tumor. Incredibly survived ten years with a benign one, then a malignant one pops up elsewhere in the brain.
