Memento Mori

Walking under the golden gate bridge, saw the coast guard unload a dead body, that was eventually loaded into a brown undertakers van.  The body was on a gurney and covered in a maroon blanket.

Water in lungs, not great. 

Possibly a Golden Gate jumper, or some unlucky fellow who went unseen overboard and succumbed to hypothermia?  What ever, it was shocking and a certain reminder of our mortality.
