My father, Stanton Lewis G-----, died on January 2, 2008.
While attending the funeral, my youngest half-brother Jared,
told me that when dad had passed, "...he had just finished
his breakfast, he was chatting with the nurse, and he denied
his pain medication, saying that he was okay."
From what I have known of "bio-dad's" disposition over the
years, I believe that he landed on "Free Parking" when he
kicked: quick, no-pain, etc.
I believe that it was Earl Nightingale, "The Strangest Secret"
and "Lead the Field" (among others) who said that "A man
usually gets what he thinks about MOST of the time."
If this is the case, then why not think about the possibility
of life-extension, even INFINITE
Using the model of a "Garden", physical death would be the
"weeds"; a gardener gets them by default. If you do nothing
to cultivate and improve the garden, you will always get weeds.
As for my garden, I am far too interested and preoccupied
with producing fruit and dispatching weeds to dwell on the
"quality of death".
