After Losing 3rd Member Of My Family.....

..I am having serious questions about my life.
I first lost my mother on May 18, 2013, then a sister died from a very aggressive lung cancer that left some of the best cancer specialists in the nation stumped on why nothing was working, and then just 2 nights ago (almost 1 year after the death of my mother) my brother died in the recovery room from heart failure.
Add to this some close former work-mates have passed away, and I am now getting to the point about seeing any more e-mails "Sad News To Report."
i am just tired of death. I know it is inevitable, but losing so many people (family and friends) is really taking a toll on me.
I am now having serious questions about my life and what I am doing. I need to earn some more money at which time I can retire (or somewhat retire) and go explore the world.
I gave my word to my boss (who is a great boss) that I will give her 3 years of hard effort before I think about leaving. I am from old school that once you give your word, you should never go back on it, but I am seriously thinking about leaving now, going home to my wife and son and skip retiring comfortably (reasonably comfortable) to go do something else.
