My neighbors came over this morning and told me the sad news that another neighbor had died suddenly at his home here in Pete’s Camp. I knew the man he was in his 80s his wife had died last year about this time and he had been, a bit lost and depressed. We were very friendly and shared many stories as we both had traveled to the same places but at different times. We both enjoyed europe and would tell each other of our travels and the places we liked to visit. I will miss him as he was a kind, gentleman, very well liked by all.
This is the third or fourth death here since I’ve been coming to San Felipe, that is only fourteen months ago. Seems that there are a lot of elderly people living here and they are passing on. Some die here suddenly like this gent, others have to leave for end of life care in the U.S.. Sad business to witness the passing of long time residents, some have been living here for decades. Of course this brings to mind that no one gets out of this life alive. This evening I had a private toast to this gentleman and let a tear or two wet my cheek he was very kind to me. I bid him a bon voyage to where ever we go after this life, if we go anywhere.
