When he was born No One was there. No One helped him through his childhood. As he grew No One helped him learn about life. When he graduated high school No One came to see him. When he got his first job No One was there to congratulate him. When he retired No One gave him a gold watch. On his 90th birthday No One gave him a party. When he collapsed No One was there to help him. No One heard him take his last breath.

No One came to the funeral. No One would remember he ever existed.

    Very wise, Christopher and slight semblance to some grandparents out there.

    How sad! Reminds me of a classic Beatles song... although the content rather differs.
