One of our long time, rather young, guests died last week. They were due to arrive next month. I’m having a tough time handling this. 
 

We’ve lost a lot of guests over the years but most of them were well over 80 and didn’t still have kids at home.

 Just going to sit in a corner and howl for awhile.

So sorry, Mort.  It makes one stop when we lose a young person - that is not the way things are supposed to be. The adage - Only the good die young comes to mind. I know a battleaxe or 2 that is proof of this.

It is OK to mourn that hole in your life.

Sorry Mort

I assume we all choose this life because we enjoy our guests and they become part of our lives even if just for a short period each year. We've lost some that passed and others that had life changes and no longer visited, leaves an empty spot.

Very sad. I don't get to know most of my guests as well as you do, but I've also had regulars die, and it always gives me pause. There are also the cases where people come here regularly for years to visit their mother, and when she dies, the last visit they make here is for the funeral. That's also sad.
