In brief: Expiration date

It's very common for people to identify with family or friends that pass away at the same age, and feel they are somehow doomed to the same fate.
Genetics certainly influences many things, but there are many other things that determine how and when our time comes. Control what you can control, enjoy what you have while you have it.
