I bought my first house from a 96 yo man.
I lived upstairs for a couple of years and would hang out with him on the front porch a lot.
He told me once that the hardest part about getting so old was everyone he'd ever known was dead. Wife, 2 of his kids, all of his old coworkers, friends, neighbors. He had outlived everyone.
I felt about that for him.
