Mine was a friend of mine who died of cancer. That was first time and last time (so far, thank god) that anyone has died. I just worked harder at everything. I always was saying, that could have been me, and they do say that 1 in 3 of us will develop cancer.
Two of my grandparents and one uncle have died of cancer. My other grandmother died of a heart attack, my principal commited suicide, a guy from my school was killed in a car accident...
Nothing more than an adult baby-sitter :rolleyes:

Um, my great-grandmother died of, well, old age (97, just three more years and she'd have got a telegram from the Queen...). My mother's cousin was run over by a drunk-driver. I didn't know him though. A guy from school was killed a couple of years ago in a car accident. I knew him, not particularly well though. Well, not well enough to go to his funeral. An aquaintance. That's all I can think of. Guess I'm lucky too, though you often find yourself wondering how you would deal with it. Scary thing is, I try and imagine it and nothing happens, no reaction. As for near-death experiences, every time I get behind the wheel its like playing Russian roulette... guess that's what you get for trying to push a Fiat Punto up to 60 MPH in under 60 seconds :S.
When I was 3 my grandpa on my father's side died of lung cancer. When I was 6 my grandma on my mom's side died of diabetes. When I was 12-14 my grandma on my dad's side died of cancer. When I was 13, my best friend's father died tragically when he fell from a ditch and hit his head on the rocks. When I was 16, my aunt died of breast cancer. When I was about 15, this guy at my school hanged himself, I was friends with his sister's boyfriend. When I was 17, my ex boyfriend (we had been broken up for 4 months) died of a severe epoleptic seizure.
My dad is probably dead. Not only all of this, but I almost died last August.
My God! How?
Well, that's kind of personal, but if you'd like, you can PM me and I will tell you.
well all that ive experienced was my great grandmother on my mom's side. however i never even got to meet my grandfather on my dad's side because he died before i was born :(
my aunt, which i was quite close too just died last month from cancer. The last few days of her life was soo distressing for me...it was horrible. She was just sittin there in hospital in pain... :(

on a lighter note if you want stories of people doing stupid(and funny) stuff to get themselves killed get the book called The Darwin Awards. the website is www.DarwinAwards.com
