minimus...my mother's uncle, which I always loved and considered a good man (and one I revered because of his fishing skills and his sparking the fishing interest in me) did that when he became bed ridden. He even used the Internet. I guess it kept his mind active and he thought he was pushing himself right into a pair o' dice on earth. Sad in many ways really, but in another its OK, it helped him deal with being stuck in bed and also let him have something to look forward to. Even pity and sadness aren't cut and dry issues w/Jehohvahs Witnesses...eh...
