A final salute to those who died in 2010
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.
