It's sad when we lose people we know. This summer I lost a student from Haiti, he was an excellent mathematician with a lot of potential. He died in his sleep due to a heart condition; so young yet so fragile.
A few year ago I also lost another student who loved being in my class. He thought I was the coolest thing around since I always screw around with their minds when I send them on a hunt. This guy took a UNIX script course from me and it was like he found his calling. The day he finished his course and got his grades he went looking for me to thank me. On his way up in the building he slipped and hit the stairs with part of his leg (he was very overweight) then thought nothing of it. He finally found me in the parking lot doing wheelies with my Rx7 and he commented how it sounded like a squirrel to get me to react. The next day he was dead, a blood clot from his leg went up to is heart and that was it.
People, enjoy the ones you're with and appreciate everyone for what they are, you never know when you lose them.
