“None of my parents lived to be 60, so life for me is just about to get started. There’s been a spectre of death around my life, that’s what I’ve been dealing with last year till this year. When I turned 59, it was a big deal for me, a big deal for me! My mom died at 59, my father died at 57/58,” he said.
