      Jun 26 2012: Sorry Varlan but I get stuck on number one. As i have said before, it might not be a bad thing but who knows for sure. I have yet to interview anyone who returned (although i have read books) but they were not compelling enough to get me to make the trip when i had the chance in December.

        Jun 26 2012: Debra, in regards to his first one, could he have meant it from the viewpoint of both the person who was in habitual, terrible pain that precluded his/her demise as well as the loved ones who witnessed it? That is what came to my mind the second time I read and thought about it.

          Jun 27 2012: Varlan, I hope it is no insult to say that you remind me of me when I was young. So many thoughts whizzing through your brain and so much certainty! I thought I knew how i felt about death (and I am not afraid of it per se but not thrilled about launching out on someone else's time table). Now I know that you do not know until you have faced it down. Living is a real good thing and we must all experience death - all of us must- so why not let us do it in our own time?
