Perspective on Youth

As I have mentioned before my grandmother-in-law is 95 years old and absurdly energetic and healthy.  A few days ago she was talking about a friend who had recently passed away at the ripe old age of 85. Most of us would agree that if you die at 85 you’ve had a pretty good innings. Grandma’s comment?

“Gee – she died young.”
