A Disadvantage Getting Older

One of the less pleasant aspects of getting older is the realization a number of people you knew are not getting older.  Each week it seems someone else you know dies.  A couple of weeks ago it was Luther Hitchens.  Luther was 65 and that doesn't seem that old at my age.  My relationship with Luther was by way of him being a Delmar Maryland Commissioner.  I always felt he was decent guy.  He certainly was not one who sit back on his ass and let other people run the town for him.  Beside Commissioner he was involved with the VFW and American Legion plus a motor cycle group.  I understand he had a number of daughters and a son plus a wife.  I feel for their loss and for the town's loss.
