The list of high profile deaths this year is incredible and in such a short period of time. Death has also touched close to home this year for me with my father's passing at 89 - just weeks ago.

Perhaps it has for you too.

With Farah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, Robert McNamara and tonight ... I read that Walter Cronkite is dead at 92. He was in the same class as Edward R. Murrow. Cronkite's career goes back to WWII and was seen as the most 'trusted man in America'. He dies just days short of the 40th anniversary of the first Moon Landing of which he was closely associated.

What an incredible year of losses. Your thoughts?
Or perhaps death is something we just don't talk about.
