When was the first time you really began thinking about your own mortality?


Was it a certain age? A certain life event like the death of a parent or friend? The birth of a child? I'm 45. I had a good friend commit suicide when I was 39. Still, I don't think I really thought about my own mortality then. A few days ago, a friend who I wasn't close to our anything, died in his sleep. Somehow I think it's affected me more than other, more personal events. I'd really like to hear from those both old, middle-aged, and younger.

    The best advice I guess is to plan as if you will be gone tomorrow, but work hard to be around for a long, long time.
