The Season for Death???

There are a lot of older ladies and gents that live in my building. So many, that people have wondered why I chose to live in a retirement community. The truth is though that there is a core group of people 70+ that linger in the lobby and that is who you see. Not everyone else coming and going.

Last night I saw the 4th obituary of the summer posted in the lobby. Management writes their apt # in marker at the top. I have lived here a year and have not seen any previous obits that I can recall. Not that I knew any of those people (and they were old, none of them were sudden), but this coupled with Susan's post, and even Jenni's post about her cat, as well as a conversation I had yesterday afternoon with a friend about another friend who had passed several months ago, just has me in a funk.

What is it with all of this death? I'm not spiritual, not into god, but I can't help but wonder what this all means...
