Too young

I just read about an old hs classmate who died on Sept 4th. Apparently he had a massive heart attack at 46 years old....that's just too damned young. He's the 3rd I know of out of the class of 160 people. 2 heart attacks and 1 from cancer. I suspect there are others I don't know about.

Sorry, modo.


Cancer and car wrecks have taken a few from my class as well.

Sorry to hear that.

We can't all be like this man.

I'm about 15 years ahead of you and I got to tell you you never get used to it.

For me high school was the deadliest. In the late '60s and early '70s cars had big engines, drum brakes and sloppy ass suspensions. Seat belts were a novelty. Seems every weekend some kid would get drunk and run his GTO or Super Bee into a tree, killing or crippling those in the car with him.

Most of the people I knew in high school are dead due to drug over dose or drug related violence. (which includes heart attacks)

Cancer, OD's and withdrawal have taken a few people from my graduating class, and I'm not even 30 yet. Recklessness kills people.
