Someone wrote it’s been a year of losing friends, a half dozen friends having passed in the prior 5 months.

No disrespect to anyone who’s lost a loved one, but isn’t it time we began to embrace that death is part of the process? That’s like saying I’ll throw noodles and sauce and cheese in the oven at 350 for an hour but OMG, I don’t want to see lasagna at the end of it.
