Life and Death
This is a question primarily for posters who are maybe 55+.
Including my husband, seven of my closest friends have parents who have died. One woman has lost both her parents. We are all under 40. Only two of those deaths were from cancer and none were vehicle accidents or other traumatic injuries.
My question is, does this seem typical? Is this in line with your experience when you and your peers were in your 30s? I think of my mom who is experiencing the passing of her parents and supporting her friends as they lose theirs (they are in their early 60s), and it feels bizarre that I am experiencing the same thing.
Sorry if it’s not a hot topic, I just got the news of the latest friend losing her mom and it made me ponder.
