Early Onset Alzhiemer's Disease can strike at any time Mantonanjin. There are patients as young as 4 years old with this disease. It is what my wife died of. She never made her 62 birthday. But she lasted 5 1/2 years with it. It  is more devastating and quicker than regular dementia.

RIP Malcom Young.  You and your mates provided a lot of rockin' joy in a whole lot lot of lives.  A life well lived and legacy that will last for generations. 

 

Re: ways to go (hint, there is only one good one, and that is going to bed and not waking up), going too soon, etc., current events in my life are highlighting that our health and very lives can be gone in a flash.  Live every day to its fullest and make them count.  

 

Hug your kids and tell them how much they mean to you. You never know when you will not be able to again.
