COVID-19 toll has many of us thinking about death

Recommended reading for these times from Dr. John Chowning, pastor, Saloma Baptist Church

By Pastor Paul Prather

Like many of you, COVID-19 has got me thinking a lot about death.


As U.S. fatalities from the coronavirus approached 700,000, higher than the toll of the 1918 flu pandemic, a reader sent me this note on social media:
"Perhaps you could write an article on dealing with death as we are surrounded with friends and family who are losing their lives to Covid. I would love to hear your wisdom and observations on this subject. We are all in a battle with this enemy called death."
I can't say I possess any wisdom about death, but here are a few observations:

- Everybody dies. Many of us go out of our way to avoid talking about death, or even thinking about it. But however much we skirt the issue, death is inevitable. Everything that's born dies -- those we love, those we hate and we ourselves. Our family, our pets, even the ants that break into our kitchen. From birth, we're all on a journey toward death. To me, it's healthier to face that and make peace with it.

- COVID-19 is a bad way to die. There's probably no good way to leave this world, but there are a few particularly bad ways, and the coronavirus ranks among them. Its victims die nearly alone, hooked to ventilators, lungs turned to glass, struggling for breath. That's not how I'd prefer to go or want anybody else to go. That's why I've taken my shots, wear my mask and keep my distance.

Searching for relatives of the late Bob Gilbert

Danielle Ketchum writes:
I'm not sure if you can help me or not but it's worth a shot. I found a high school class ring and would like to find the proper owners or their immediate family to return it. The ring is Grissom High class of 1989. One side has Bob Gilbert, the other a football player.

My search has led me here as the name is correct and if he was born in 1970 then he quite possibly could have graduated in 1989. Such a sad story. I need to confirm if this is the deceased's high school ring so I can return it.
