Just learned from the FB grapevine that one of my middle & high school classmates passed away quite unexpectedly last week. We weren't best buds or anything like that, but we got along just fine and were in many classes together from 6th thru 12th grades. Smart guy, funny, gifted athlete (basketball), good looking (always had the girls chasing after him)... but never acted like a DB as many in his position might. He had just retired at 63 after a long career at Morgan Stanley. Last week he had a relatively minor surgical procedure done on his knee and died the next day from a pulmonary embolism. You just never know who's gonna go next, or how they're gonna go.
