Bravo Mark,

For those that have a long term interest in life, your reflections are exceptionally important.

I imagine a long walk on the Iron Horse Trail and ending my life quite naturally among its loveliness. Any senior must face the comforting reality that we all shall be here a moment.

Nice work!
