It is sad to loose someone and if they have been suffering, it is a blessing to know that they are suffering no more. I lost my grandmother a month ago. I miss her to pieces but I would not have wanted her to suffer any longer. My condolences for your loss. ~hugs~

My condolences, Asmeone. As others have said, it is never easy to lose someone we care about, even if they have been suffering.

And thank you for taking the opportunity to write about how destructive our pathological fear and denial of death is. It is good to hear when someone is able, as your friend did, to come to terms with the inevitability of their own death and not spend their last moments in the sometimes brutalizing struggle for life at all costs that society would have us make.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Hit me up if you need to talk there's some good souls on here if you ever wanna chat about it.

Additionally your right, the thought of death alone is much worst than the process itself. I know a 97 year old man who we don't know how much longer he's going to live and nearly died the other day.

Surely enough today he's sitting at the table drinking coffee with a mind as sharp as the day he was 20. Life is amazing you know, you can never predict it no matter how hard you try.

Inevitably we all pass on to the next life. It is best to not live in fear and embrace the present as well as the future.

I am truly sorry for your loss. I am glad that your friends suffering has come to an end, but sorry he had to go so soon. A few nights ago I had a dream that I was going to die in a short amount of time. Since then I have been trying to live life to the fullest and show more love to family and friends. Never waste a tragedy, learn from it.
