The fragility of human life is sometimes most apparent in the randomness of accidental, sudden, and profound loss. Such was the fate of a close friend and colleague, Bartley R. Frueh, MD. A fall down the steep stairs of a local restaurant and the severe head injury sustained from it led to his tragic death the next day, February 16, 2010. Although Dr Frueh retired last year from the University of Michigan and its Kellogg Eye Center, he remained on the active medical staff, seeing patients in the clinic and performing surgery on a regular basis. Dr Frueh and his wife, Cheryl, were enjoying his retirement in myriad activities including an archeological dig outside of Rome last summer as well as several bicycle trips and travels to 24 countries in the past 11 years. Special among the Fruehs' travels were multiple trips to Australia, where Dr Frueh had taken 2 sabbaticals in Melbourne and maintained close ties.
