2 weeks ago Fire and Police were here at another condo here. We didn't know what was it about.

I was just outside getting the mail and ran into another neighbor who ask me have you heard what happened and I said no, what?

He said the guy in that condo was found dead by the Police after one of his out of town relative reported haven't heard from him for 2 weeks.

I know that guy. When he moved here 4 years ago I saw him and his girlfriend struggling to get a mattress upstairs to their 3rd floor unit.

Then a year ago he came and asked me to help him move to the unit he was found dead in. He broke up with his girlfriend and they were in a larger condo with higher rent.

Another time I was walking from my car to our unit and I picked up a wallet in the parking lot and it was his. I did return it with everything in it. It was end of month and it had his rent and paycheck in cash. Then when my car was in the shop I had to use Uber for a week. Several times I called Uber it went to him, being he had the Uber phone on and he was closest.

I just saw him recently walking his dog and he waved at me and I waved back and he asked how I was doing and I said fine, how about you? He said great.

Neighbor I spoke with have no idea what he died from.

Sad when people die alone, and nobody notices for a few weeks. This happened with a few coworkers over the years. Some were suicides. Very sad. Divorce really destroys some guys, especially if there are kids involved.

His live in girlfriend of many years got married when she was still living with him. That's what he told me when I was helping him move to another condo.

She married another guy while still living with him ? Talk about an unhealthy relationship. How old was he ?

I don't know. I want to say 40.

The HOA rep here just told me he was there when the Police had someone brought him down on a stretcher and he also said there were folks in white hazmat suits bringing stuff down in bags.

Coronavirus? The HOA guy told me it will be available online for rent next week. I don't know if I want to live in there. They have to tell anyone who is interested that someone just died there, don't they?

If nobody sees you for a few days, in my little corner of my old farts trailer world, somebody comes knocking on your door, usually a couple of people.

This thread reminds me of this poor women. Her mummified body was found in her car after sitting there for five years. All her bills were set on auto pay. No one noticed her death until her accounts were empty.

Its funny you bring this up. We retired from Managing Garden Terrace apts. In July 2019 after 25 years. In that 25 years we saw more death we could handle.
We had a mostly older residents and many of them no longer move in and die.
Could not count all the welfare check calls I had. I personally found 38 dead
residents in that time.
It took an emotional toll on me and I suffer from PTSD from it. Was told by my doctor you need to find a new job or it will kill you. We decided
it was time to find a new life out west. Moved to Spokane in July 2019. Was unemployed for a year but the wife who was partner at Garden Terrace all those years
to, got me a Job at working at Walmart working on the summer long total remodel project. Good money to at $17.50/hour. Going to be 60 this November.

I hope you are able to manage your PTSD. 38 people, that is a lot of images to try and erase from your mind.

I have several friends that are/were police officers and EMT/Fireman. They seem to have developed a sort of macabre sense of humor about all the dead bodies they have seen. Some of the stories were quite gruesome. I guess humor is just one way of coping with it.

Tow truck drivers as well. I worked for awhile for a towing company and they did mechanical checks on fatal wrecks. I was the one who had to climb into the car.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Not all of them died from natural causes. 3 were suicides. But dead non the less. My last that sent us packing
was a good friend of mine that use to live down the street. about 4 blocks. Across from the Hospital. Marty was a Tool for sure. He was a know it all and
pushed away many. Got his welfare check 2 times. First was enter and holler and I received a get the Hell out of here. He was taking a shower. Next one
came the next day. to check again. OMG, went and opened the bathroom door and the smell alone told me it all. Was devastated by it and had to call 911.

Pushed me over board. Started looking at retirement right away.
