Death gives us pause

To know anyone, even remotely, who has passed away, tugs at our heart strings and our mind strings and leaves a bit of an ache. We are reminded of how close death is to us and how no one can ever escape it. It gives us pause. I myself have learned very recently through FB of the deaths of a former student and a former colleague who was a friend as well. I mourn at their youthful passing and wonder at what I will be leaving behind when others hear of mine.
