So, don’t spend so much time there.
I have had a number of discussions about death recently, thought I would go looking for ideas on the topic. My wife has a co-worker with terminal lung cancer, not an easy thing to deal with. She is trying hard to keep in communication with her, asking her how she is, if there is anything she can do, etc. But when it is terminal and soon, what can you do? We talked about how there aren’t any easy sentiments to say or send in a card in that situations. It’s just hard and that’s that.
Another friend had a close family member commit suicide. It wasn’t expected as far as I know and they were very close. All you can do is offer condolences and help, gently talking about things as they are able and willing to talk. It’s another hard situation.
What are your thoughts on death? Are you afraid of it? What do you think is on the other side, anything? Heaven, consciousness, hell, limbo, Rambo?
