Dave Freeman, author of '100 Things To Do Before You Die' dies suddenly.

In the most ironic twist of all, the co-author of 100 Things To Do Before You Die, well, died. The 47-year-old author passed away after hitting his head in his Venice, Calif., home. Relatives of Freeman said he was only able to visit half of the places in his book. Recommendations in the book include everything from running with the bulls at Pamplona to taking a voodoo pilgrimage in Haiti.

Certainly Freeman's passing is a sober reminder of how pressing the need is to live life to the fullest. Unfortunately, between gas prices and the crippled housing market--it's not likely most of us will be visiting any of the places on his list--unless one of them is our own backyard. But his book has taught us to follow our dreams and appreciate our time on earth.

What an amazing reminder of how precious and short life really is. This man lived his life to teach the rest of us this important lesson. Hope you get more time on your next round, Dave!!!

There is another book, written by a Jew for Jesus. A list of Jews in the book who passed on, died at a young age. Why? Jews are held more responsible. Manager of the Beatle, on the list, died after pilgrimage to guru land. Added to the list, sadly, Dave Freeman who also made a pilgrimage to voodooland. Choosen people of God be WARNED! This calling is no joke.
