I kinda know how I'm going to die. I'm probably going to be old and senile like Cloris Leachman and acting like a total fool. The good C-D folks who have heard my pleas and have agreed to help will take me out into a parking lot somewhere and beat the living crap out of me, just like I asked them to do if they ever caught me acting like Cloris.

What are friends for? May I invite myself, too, please? It's probably a good stress-reliever.

Bit of a conundrum here...I'm torn between hoping for a quick, painless death and getting to be around to plan the whole thing out. As a control freak, I'd want the opportunity to "get my affairs in order." Of course, one should be doing this all along, but it seems to be done more earnestly when death is imminent (at least that's the case in the movies).
I'm going to go with: Die in my sleep as an old lady with all her affairs in order. Also having showered recently and wearing clean underwear.

Speaking of movies...has anyone seen Rocket Gibralter? Pretty good movie about grandkids who scheme to give their grandfather a "viking funeral" despite the protests of their parents. Saw it a long time ago, but still worth a recommendation.

Honestly, I want to die doing something heroic honorable. Like taking a bullet for the president (doesnt matter if he's Democrat or Republican - he the PRESIDENT OF THE US), saving a child, protecting the innocent, saving a life, really just DOING WHAT IS RIGHT when no one else is willing to do so. Running into a burning building to save a baby, pushing an old lady off the train tracks before the train hits her.

Bottom line is to die doing something honorable and RIGHT!!

I want to die slowly. My mother died, suddenly, in her sleep and so much was left undone. My father languished in a nursing home for 3.5 years. In the first 2.5 he made many amends. He was, unfortunatley, ready to die at that point but had another year to go. Still, I'd rather go that route and have time to tell people the things I want them to know than to leave this earth, suddenly, without closure as my mother did.

A few weeks ago, a 54 year old neighbor went in for a physical on Tuesday, was scheduled for a biopsy on Friday and died on the table from a reaction to the anesthetic (sp?). She left behind two teenaged children who are just reeling. No closure. So much left unsaid. Too young to die and died too suddenly to give family any closure.

I figure I won't care once I'm dead but my kids might appreciate time to say their good byes. They are the ones who have to live with my death. I just have to live it and move on. Death is a certainty so fast or slow it will happen. Getting it over quickly for me might mean more suffering for those I leave behind. I'd rather go slow and have time so that my loved ones are ready for my passing when I go. My only thought when my father died was that he was finally at peace. It has been 28 years since my mom died and I'm still not at peace with her death.
