Saddened by the news of these crew

Just last week while having dinner with some ex crew, the name of a chief steward came up during our conversation. I was told that the chief steward is very sick (advanced stage of cancer). I remember that chief steward as I had once called him up to the office and discussed with him regarding a complaint by a stewardess. The complaint was more or less a personal matter between him and the stewardess but we managed to settle the issue amicably. My impression of him was good and now after 20 years, I received this bad news about his health. He is now in his mid 40s.

Also at the same time, I was told a retired ifs whom I knew fairly well had a bad stroke. He is about 64 years old and to me he looked fit and strong. He once told me he does 200 push-ups daily. He is now in a nursing home.
Guess what?  Staying in the same nursing home was an ex chief steward who is dying of an incurable sickness. All these news saddened me for I knew everyone one of them.

Let our actions and flights be on wings of angels and arrive safely by the grace of God. When the church bells rang, it tolls for them. If we can hear them ,it means you are blessed !Continue on the journey of care of our fellow men.What you say now will be cast in stone, hence. Bless you and all.

Be grateful you didn't end up like them.Some who work the cabin don't realise you don't stay young forever so they squander their earnings,neglect their health and fool around instead of finding a suitable marriage partner.By the time they realise what they're missing,it is too late for them to do anything about it. So many end up alone,sick and with little in savings, to survive,short of collecting cardboards.

By 70, whether pain in ass or not, depends... But definitely a nuisance !

At 80, you are definitely a pain in the ass... your family must be waiting eagerly for you to kick the bucket..

I think to cater to all readers ,the comments here below need to be deleted or withdrawn. This is not a geriatric blogs.Too much negative energy being noted.My take.

As a mark of respect to other readers,its tasteless to discuss such personal affairs in public, one should go to their priest. There are people who needs charities who are struggling to live day to day, for example cardboard aunties and cleaners in food court. Please donate to them if you are unable to use up your life savings, you will be remembered well and parties to celebrate your passing. The church bells can tolled a few more if you requested, or whatever is your last wish. For even a camel can go through the eye of a needle, and not your earthly wealth. May peace be with you.

On doing 200 push-ups a day.....what is the use when smoking one to two packets of cigarettes a day at the same time?

Same theory and mentality as those who eat unhealthy food but drink diet coke or walk 30 mins on treadmill at 3km/hr playing their h/p and rewarding themselves with a frappe afterwards. Its a mental thingy. Thought they can balance and negate.
