I'm getting old. I'm slipping. Friends of mine are going through the same thing.

Yet, others, it seems numbers of them, are undergoing worse.

Within the fraction of a month, I've lost dear friends and acquaintances:

Danny Collins, Lester Campbell, Walter Carter. I also learned of the death of Jacqueline Farrar McCauley. All in about 2 weeks.

And a friend, and I, myself, have experienced smaller medical reversals. In addition, people I've visited have lost friends and family just now.

What gives? Have you been having the same experience, or is it just me?

The good news is: John 5:28, 29 says, in part...

"The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, ... to a resurrection"

Yes, getting old means saying goodbye to some friends for a while.

It will be a glorious time for me. I have seen many people die in the recent years. I am going on 62 now. It's been particularly brief, this life I have lived so I think of each day as a day to cherish. Sharing it with good people and my family is not taken for granted.

The trick for us is to make sure we are in a memorial tomb. No, not merely a human grave. God's memory. It's up to him.

Since writing this piece, I learned still one more died! Just a year ago. Dave Blaisdell.
