If it happened on her eleventy-first, I'd have said that maybe she just put the Ring on and disappeared.

One year too early.

She got what everyone lifetime..

Headline upgrades subby to "magnificent bastard" status

I just can't find it sad. She lived to 110, and by all accounts, had a rich, full life and died quietly in her sleep.

/Awesome tag needed

And she was the wife of Ernst Ising and had a PhD in economics herself. RIP interesting lady.

Hundred and ten? How'd she die?

/How'd she die? She fell of her Harley at Bike Week.

Liver sausage and butter? Ew, no. Liver sausage and a nice mustard, now you're talking.

Is the body still warm?

how ironic that she would DIE on her BIRTHday.

cbackous: how ironic that she would DIE on her BIRTHday.

Even more so than rain on her wedding day. Alanis has a new line for her song.

Last week, I had an aunt die on her 99th birthday. Several cousins who called to say Happy Birthday were shocked to be told, "Sorry to tell you, but she just passed away."

40,177.5 days old.

That's a lot of sunrises.

That's how I want to go, on my 110th birthday...

Only 30 people are left in the entire world that were born in the 1800's.

Time is undefeated.

Glad I'm not the only one.

I liked the fact that she lived to be that old and loved to eat sausages and butter sandwiches.
2012-02-03 03:51:23 PM  
Makes you think.

I never feel sad when old people die, that is anyone above 75. I don't hate old people but I just don't feel sad. I feel sad when young people die and especially sad when children die. I suppose it has to do with the fact that when people reach 75 or older they have lived a life and to be quite frank in most cases are only hanging on and would not be doing anything significant beyond that point.

I don't feel sad when someone drops their glass after finishing their beer and I don'ty feel sad when someone dies after having lived their life.
