Where did all the Japanese centernarians go?

The AARP Bulletin had an interesting article by that title, written by Frank McCoy.

In July, Tokyo officials decided to honor the city’s oldest resident, a 111-year-old man. After a relative wouldn’t let them into the man’s home, police were called. The man’s remains–he may have been dead for 30 years–were found, and the family was questioned about collecting the deceased’s monthly pension.

The article also reported that in September Japan’s Justice Ministry reported that the existence of 234,354 centenarians listed as “alive” in family registries couldn’t be confirmed.

Application? You are only alive until you die. God knows our beginnings and ends. I’m thankful to be alive and experiencing God’s love.  What application do you see here?
