    when somebody’s that old, how can the family be devastated that he died? isn’t it to be expected and even welcomed that an old person will die?
    Respect to mah man! He had fun in life. RIP.

    Dear Tosin, that’s often not the case these days because people are living longer. My died just died at 80 and I didn’t welcome his death at all…
