    You know you are getting older when you start looking up old classmates and friends, and the first place you look is Find-A-Grave. i am finding all too many of them listed.

      even though I'm about one generation younger than you,
      consider:

      Steve Jobs

      was born the same year as me:

      NAME: Steve Jobs
      OCCUPATION: Entrepreneur
      BIRTH DATE: February 24, 1955
      DEATH DATE: October 05, 2011

      And,

      Michael Jackson

       NAME: Michael Jackson
      OCCUPATION: Dancer, Songwriter, Music Producer, Singer
      BIRTH DATE: August 29, 1958
      DEATH DATE: June 25, 2009  

      He was born the same year
      as my younger brother.

      And,
      my younger brother,
      and his wife,
      are smokers,
      so,
      even though he doesn't call me,
      if I visit our family plot
      at our local cemetery,
      I will find,
      one by one,
      the markers for my brother's wife,
      and then my brother,
      most likely.

      That's how I discovered
      that his parents in-law
      died, one by one.

      Bringing a child into the world at this point in history is a crime, the crime of child endangerment.
