It is bizarre to find myself looking at an obituary of a classmate, who was likely 10 years my junior. Cancer is certainly an insidious disease. Yvonne looked fine a few months ago. She was so enthusiastic and passionate about her studies. I read that she had passed away and was left thinking 'that can't be the same Yvonne', since I didn't know what her family name was. Unfortunately it was the same woman. It's just strange. I know only 2 people my own age who have died. Something to come to grips with as one ages.
