Death Sucks

    There were twelve actors that I liked that died this year. Most of them were about 10 years older than me. That means, that if I'm lucky, I've got about 10 years left. It's hard to accept that my time is rapidly running out, or maybe I'll live to be a hundred and have 29 years left.

    Since you can only live one day at a time, I guess I have the same time as anyone else today. Since my wife wants me to go with her to church today it will seem like a lot of time.

    If you go to church maybe you can get some points for the afterlife. That is if you are lucky enough to pick the correct church.

    Maybe just having faith will get you into Gods kingdom. I hope so. Thats the kind of church I would like.

    Life is like a roll of toilet papper the closer you get to the end the faster it goes. I'm right behind you.

    I understand and feel what your saying. Happy new year. It's good to get out and be with people.

    Yea, JB. If we are living during the last trumphet I'll be changed in the twinkling of an eye. Oh, I forgot, you have to be a born again as a believer. The more I go to church the less I beleive. They just keep telling me I'm going to hell with the devil and be BBQed.

    Undecided, that is why I don't go to church, but I do believe in the Bible and the solid hope that is centered around Christ, there is an afterlife a resurrection if you will. I don't think we can put a finger on it and say we know every detail but there is definitely more than this life has to offer and it is a garuntee.

    Strange, I was thinking a lot about death this morning as well. I'm Jaguarbass' age, but wonder how much longer. Certainly well into the second half of life!

    Don't fear it, but not really looking forward to it either. I guess the ideal time to die is when your ready for the eternal rest.

    Not there yet, by any means! Happy New Year gentlemen.

    I agree Undecided, not in any hurry to die yet. I'm 62, and death keeps popping up in my head every day, I can't shake it out of my head. It's the not knowing , the uncertainty of it all. Read all you want, all the pros and cons, it still don't settle it. Where did we come from? Why are we here? Where are we going? I will miss my friends and family when my time comes. Either I will sleep, gone forever or there will be a huge awakening. It is what it is, it will happen when it happens. UNLESS, I get that personal experience of reassurance from the Creator, God , Jesus, Him, Her, Consciousness, whatever. In any event, no one is promised tomorrow.

    Well..............I'm 61 and my father died in January at 92, officially of Alzheimer's disease, but he had had some strokes, but no cancer or heart disease. My mother is 94 and not showing any signs of death. She is very sharp mentally and very healthy, just frail with osteoporosis. Her heart is strong, low blood pressure (me too) and no signs of any kind of cancer.

    My grandparents lived very long lives (89, 94, grandfather died at 78 after a long recovery from a fall, a blood clot got him...the other grandfather disappeared in 1928, so we don't know what happened to him) and my great grandparents on both sides lived a long life (92-94), so I am thinking I have at least 30 years left. I hope I can avoid Alzheimer's though. As far as we can remember, Dad was the only one in the family who had it. Everyone else lived well into their late 80's or into their 90's with sharp minds.

    I'm with you Ken,

    I'm appoaching my 48th birthday and in the past week I've been thinking about my Father who passed away from Prostate Cancer when he was 75. my Mother is in her eighties and all of my sisters except for one are older than me and are in reasonably good health. even though we take care of ourselves we cannot escape getting older and who is to say I will follow suit with the rest of my family and live a long life, no guarantee's.

    I guess we have to thank our Great,great,great,great,great,great,great,great,great,great...Grandparent's for disobeying God and eating that fruit. I still ponder the punishment fitting the crime....

    Don't worry about it!

    Death is the beginning of the next great adventure!!!!

    Actually, the only moment we have for sure is the one right now. There is no point in trying to live in the future, for the here and now is all we have even if we live eternally.

    Yesterday is history,

    Tomorrow is a mystery,

    Today is a gift—

    that’s why they call it the present
