jeff (manager): folks...before we begin our workday, i'm afraid i have some sad news. our ceo john henderson's mother passed away late last night. as you can imagine, this is a difficult time for the henderson family.
frank: oh, that is sad news. i met his mother once...she was a very nice woman.
penny: was she sick?
j: yes, i believe she was suffering from some illnesses; but she was also 91 years old.
f: wow! ninety-one years old! that's a pretty good run.
p: yeah...very impressive.
frank说，他见过henderson的母亲，老太太人很好。she was a very nice woman. penny问，她是不是病死的。得知老太太91岁高龄后，frank说，that's a pretty good run，意思是“够长寿的”。
george: you know, i'm from china and in some places in my homeland if you live past 80, they used to celebrate your death instead of mourning.
j: that's kind of a nice tradition. a long, full life is something to celebrate.
g: um, seeing as i'm not that familiar with western culture, i'm wondering...what's the protocol here? what can we do for the henderson family? what should i say?
j: in the west, people usually just say something like, "i'm sorry."
