Death


Death: A Tough Subject,

There are many things that come into a person's life that makes them feel funny, to me death is one of them.  I think just in the last year or so I've come to think about this subject more and more and want to come to peace with it.  I think when we come to this subject a lot of people have different ideas.  There are very religious people who feel that GOD will take care of them and bring them to paradise.  There are other people that feel that they need to do as good a job as they can here on earth to do what they think GOD wants them to do and that's to care for each other.

There are many things that come into a person's life that makes them feel funny, to me death is one of them.  I think just in the last year or so I've come to think about this subject more and more and want to come to peace with it.  I think when we come to this subject a lot of people have different ideas.  There are very religious people who feel that GOD will take care of them and bring them to paradise.  There are other people that feel that they need to do as good a job as they can here on earth to do what they think GOD wants them to do and that's to care for each other.

This year, however,  I was faced with some physical things that I couldn't handle myself and had to trust other people to take care of me and I was at peace with it.  I felt that if GOD wanted to take me I was ready.  I've had some friends that have died in the last year or two and they have been pretty close to my age.  It really makes you think.  We are not going to be here forever.  Dave Casper a hall of famer of the NFL and a teammate of mine at Notre Dame told me once none of us are getting out of here alive.  One of my friends that I know is pretty close to going to the other side.  He is getting weaker each time I see him.  He's a good man that has a great family.  I'm praying for him and hope he is not in great pain.  If he does pass I want it to be with not much suffering.  I've known Bob for over 25 years.  We would talk about all kinds of subjects and spiritual things and after life was one of them.  He is a tough man, but, also a kind and caring man.  I'm glad I have him as a friend.  Ladies and Gentleman love the people you know and value their life you never know when it ends.  GOD BLESS.
