I found out about his death because of a police notice on his door and asked our Super what happened. Our Super said the police sealed his apartment because they needed to go through his stuff to find someone to call. They haven’t been able to find any one yet nor has anyone showed up. That’s sad.
I remember someone telling me how the first two rows of your funeral are the people who really count. The exercise then is to think about who would be in the first two rows and make sure to put an effort into keeping and building those relationships.
