You’re Going To Die

This is a simple fact. You’re going to die. Something in this world is going to kill you, me, and everyone else currently alive. This is a fact, an incontrovertible fact, a cornerstone of our existence.

Kirk sits alone
To Sadly Go Perhaps

Dee died in 1999. Jimmy passed over in 2005. Now Leonard has gone on to the next thing. Bill’s still going though, closer and closer to doing it alone and I have to wonder how he feels about that.
