Sun shining through the Rain = Life and Death

Life is about Ups and Downs.
You need the rain to appreciate the sunshine – etc., etc., etc.

It’s been a weird year for me:

  • College Best Friend passed away
  • College Roommate passed away.
  • Close friend passed away (85), last night
  • Parents getting stronger with help.
  • My body is apparently quite healthy.

It was interesting finding the 85-year-old friend, last evening. She passed away on her bed – having a lie-down. She looked very Zen. 
She was having some unidentified health challenges.

FDNY, NYPD, a Detective, the ME, the morgue all trooped through the small apartment.  All polite, kind and working to the best of their abilities. NYPD had to seal the apartment because there wasn’t a spouse or roommate. The apartment will be opened up after the courts allow it…..paperwork.

Here I thought it would be my Parents to move on — with all their challenges. Instead, it was a lovely elderly friend who lived her Life on her own terms.

I’m sad, yet happy she moved on in a peaceful way.
