Have you been surprised by a recent death by pneumonia of someone you know? (Poll) [View all]

I have. Twice this week, I learned that someone I knew who was about 80 just died of pneumonia. In the month of February.

Not saying it’s COVID-19. But it gave me a little concern to know that no one knows. Because they haven’t been testing.

Both of them were a surprise. At least one of them had a rapid, unexpected decline.

No man is an island. I love our 80-year olds... at this time in history, it’s really very nice to be able to keep the elders around.

Beautiful well respected / loved people, Jim and Marie.
