I was just looking at hospice care facilities for my father. Opening up CP and am reminded we're how we're all slowly swept away. My mother passed this past February.
My logical self can prepare and rationalize. Except for the helplessness of those of us that remain. There's no way to really grasp this. I try to dwell on the nice memories - odd little things that, in the scheme of things, count for a lot more than could be imagined.
With time and luck, what we have left of those who've gone before us are only the good times.

Really sorry to hear about your Dad...sounds like you lost your best friend as well. This hits pretty close as I found out just a few weeks ago that mine has stage 4 stomach cancer. Anyway, glad to hear someone's making the easy money!
My deep condolences... I felt the same when my beloved mother passed away... After some time pain will become little less acute. Keep yourself busy as much as possible - not to think about your great loss.
«There is a spectrum, from "clearly desirable behaviour," to "possibly dodgy behavior that still makes some sense," to "clearly undesirable behavior." We try to make the latter into warnings or, better, errors. But stuff that is in the middle category you don’t want to restrict unless there is a clear way to work around it.» Eric Lippert, May 14, 2008
