old age is terrible, especially when loved ones around can only watch and feel helpless as the body fails.
I don't know if it's better to die suddenly or to die slowly due to illness.
If you know you're dying, maybe it can give one a chance to do things one wants to do before times up.
But if you go suddenly, you will know no pain...
In a world where so much is disposable and replaceable, the sheer permanence of death is just horrible.
All that's left then is hope that maybe tomorrow will be better.
