A dear friend died from a heart attack at the age of 44, leaving behind a wife and three children under the age of sixteen.

And yet, my mother-in-law continues to live and breathe, thus proving two cliches:

Life isn't fair.

and

Only the good die young.


On a much more cheerful note, I'm going to be in New York City September 12-16, if anyone wants to get together for coffee.
