If I die a few weeks before I am 80
I will be very very unhappy if anyone says I died at 79. What is the point of living through eleven months if you don't get credit for persistence and endurance and achievement? "Almost 80." "Within a few weeks of 80." "What the Chinese would call more than 80 and a half." "A few weeks shy of his 80th birthday."
