This kind of news always saddens me.

Being middle-aged and losing people and things you grew familiar with in your teenage years and when you were in your twenties,makes you feel as if a part of you goes away.No matter if it's about Jack or about slow and pitiful disappearing of Zsa Zsa.

With years,we learn to acquire new values and apprecciate new personalities,but they can never match those from our formative years.

I know exactly what you mean Nicco! In my middle forties I realized a cleaving of the ways, something more profound than recalling being called 'Sir' for the first time in my twenties. It was a distinctive realization of difference between generations that has become more distinct as I have grown into my forties. It happens to all of us. Quite bittersweet!
