Tim:

Thank you so very much for going to all that trouble to provide me a link to the sad story that David's body was found, apparently fell from a cliff.

How tragic. Probably a really cool guy and smart and oh this is why the world is a hell of sorrows in many respects.

Why must we or any creature die?

Everything inside us rebels against mortality, for eternity has been installed in our hearts, a longing for permanency and endless happiness.

Pray or mentally bless the family and friends.

[sigh]

That's not the ending I was looking for. I live in BC and have been following this story in our provincial newspaper. Although I'm glad they at least have closure, I wish there had been a more positive outcome. My thoughts are with his family.

I agree completely.

I have a close relative who is deteriorating physically and mentally.

I hate death, insanity, evil.

This world is a hell of sorrows in many respects.

Our entertainment, careers, sex, dining out, vacations, conversations, lofty ideals, dreams and hopes...

...all tainted by the shadow of death.

Death is not natural. All that is within us rebels against it.

Call it what you want, entropy, curse of sin, alien-induced dysfunction, karma refreshing the world with passing of old and entry of new, evolution's sick joke, whatever.

Still, for any being to get sick, be murdered, have an accident...then die...is something I hate and can never get used to.

Death sucks.

Grief hurts.

My heart is with the family and friends, for sure.

I'm faced with similar, but slower, reality in my own family, as I vaguely mentioned.

Death/sickness/insanity sucks.
