Such deaths.. So early.. Especially for someone so talented.. I, for one, had family members die so young. One was 16 (allergy), 19 (murder), 6 (bone cancer), 12 (suicide). They're all second cousins, and all within the past 10 months.

So when I say that it is really sad for someone so gifted, someone who earned more than I probably could in my lifetime, die early, is a great loss for all of humanity and for the kids who would rather sink in to Justin Bieber's "music". May she rest in peace.

Death, like income tax, is one of the two certainties in life, but to lose one so young and so talented is such a shame.

As boohbah rightly points out, we should all make the most of each day as it comes.

Rest in Peace, Arfa.
