I see our life as a journey through a period of awareness lasting "three score years and ten", or whatever until transition into another time and place. So perhaps on a brighter note I'll conclude this uneasy monologue with some time honoured good advice from Corinthians, "Eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we die!", hey, isn't that what Wakes are all about Cheers ! ! ! .
Well, our son 'works in the business' as it were, and tells some interesting tales about some of their customers' final moments here on earth. As they say, what a way to go!
