Death is not what one fears, but the manner by which death comes is. To die unexpectedly in one's sleep is a blessing. To linger without knowing who one is for years in a nursing home is Hell.

Sometimes I suppose it is. My son-in-law died in his sleep of a heart attack about 3 months ago and I can't think of anyone who was blessed by it.
In memory of James Shannon Learue age 33, devoted father of three children.
