A final salute to those who died in 2010

Order Reprints

It's never easy to say goodbye to people you know. Everyone dies, but it always seems like it's too soon.

As I write this, I am reminded of a talk I had with my dad after he had been diagnosed with cancer. I was 23 years old.

"I'm not afraid to die," I told him.

"That's because you're not close," he told me.

He died in 1982. Twenty-nine years later, I have a much better understanding of my own mortality.

So on this last day of 2010, I wanted to remember those who died earlier this year, at least one last time.
