A Dear Friend Drowns In The Pacific ocean While Doing Something That He Loves

A swimming mate of mine named Cedric Collette died Saturday. He drowned while diving for abalone. He was a fit and a strong man. It shows that all of us can die suddenly. It shows how precious life is. I am 64 years old and fortunate to be healthy. Jackie Kennedy, Donna Reed, and Lyndon Johnson all died at age 64. Wealth, fame and power do not guarantee happiness or long life. When I make my 65th birthday in October, I will have a good statistical chance to live until 85 years of age.

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
