A tale of two lives

Via Dick Puddlecote,
Example 1, a life well lived,
She lived through two World Wars, rode a motorbike into her 60s and smoked right up until her 90th birthday. This week the family of Preston's oldest woman will pay their last respects to Hilda Nichols, who died on January 28 aged 107.

Example 2, maybe not as fun
Ronald M. Davis, MD, the immediate past president of the American Medical Association and a longtime advocate of healthy lifestyles and ending health care disparities, died Nov. 6 of pancreatic cancer. He was 52.

You pays your money, you take your chances. And then the great bearded one in the sky flicks his coin. Live every day as if your last and maybe it wont be.
