A European once commented “Americans seem to think death is optional.”
I had lunch with my friend George, a licensed architect who worked on plans for a medical facility earlier this year. His doctor told him a couple months ago cancer had spread throughout his bones and he had only a few months to live. George doesn’t believe him and plans to get a second opinion.
George was a quartermaster on a World War II LST at the Salerno and Anzio landings in Italy and a helmsman on D-Day. He celebrated his 93rd birthday this week. I’m betting on George.
Some people die a bit each day of their lives. Others live to the best of their ability every day until they die.
