Dying well.

I know it is not a subject we breach often here on the forum; as the forum is all about surviving and how to survive. But, I just read this article, and it warmed my heart to see so many families and friends, supporting the dying wishes of their loved ones.

Of course, I know that for some, the end will not be a calm one, but if we can choose, let us choose well.  And I don't think it woiuld hurt us, once in a while, to think about how WE can make it a fond farewell for those we leave behind. 

So the warning, before you open the thread, is that it deals with death.

I re-did the link and it is working.  Let me know if it is working for you too.

The link is working fine. . . But don't give me a bud light on my deathbed, I want a heartier beer! I meditate on death daily and I think it has given me a better perspective on its inevitablility and helps me to live the days I have more fully.  I'll be hiking again next week--that's one of my great pleasures in life.  Thank you for the interesting article.

We will all die sometime.  It is only a question of when and how!

Hopefuly it is painless with family in attendance.  Or sudden-like an auto accident.  May we all survive our Cancer and die on our own terms.  Good luck to all!

Regardless of the cause, I feel strongly that if possible a person who is facing death be allowed to meet it on their own terms...whether that be with a drink and a smoke, one last visit to a place they love, be with those they love, or choose to have assistance with their passing.

As Danker says, we will all die sometime...it begins the day we are born.  

To leave this world with dignity and free from pain is what I want for all.
