Dying Hard…

How will you die?  Peacefully?  Or, hard?

My recent conversation with author Fred Grewe hit close to home this past week.  I got a call late in the evening to go the hospital.  A dear friend of many years had just received difficult news from the doctor:  “Your time on earth is almost over, possibly ending at any moment.”

As I entered her room, she greeted me with the same grace she always had.  We talked.  She laughed and cried; I listened.  She wasn’t afraid of dying, but she was nervous about the possible pain.  The only request she had was not to live longer, but to pass quietly in her sleep.  We prayed together, hugged, and agreed to talk again the next day.

We never did.  She passed away peacefully in her sleep.
