The death of Ivan Ilych

My father committed suicide at age 57, I was 18. Ever since then, I realized that we are dying from the moment we are born. Accidents can take us at any time – so all time is a gift, even if we do not always appreciate it. Live and die each day, each moment. I have been oh so close 4 or five times – I wonder if I will laugh, sigh or cry.
