Many, various, and continuing.
Think about this for a little bit, and realize it really is not so sad.
These people died right in the middle of really living. I can´t think of a better place or time to go, than in the midst of a self-motivated journey to a spiritual place, surrounded by supportive fellow-travelers.

Dying is just another part of living. The camino is lined with pilgrim cemeteries. I´d much rather make my exit from somewhere along the trail than from an antiseptic hospital wired-up to machines.
(I can only hope my exit would not overly traumatize the pilgrims around me!)
