I remember the first time when I realized that if I died nobody would say that I died to young!

I guess there are very few of us Sunday Stealers who would be too young to die now. Yikes.

"Dying young" has long been a joke between my friend John and I. So long I can't recall which of us started it. With each birthday we toast that "At least you didn't die young."

Brava to your Golden Apple! Between the affection of your students and the approval of your peers, you know you're doing it right.
