Philosophy

My weekly call to Mom & Dad on Sunday was when I broke the news that a friend had suddenly dropped dead. My Dad told me this had happened to one of our family friends not too long ago, and then told me that one of his his closest boyhood pals has Alzheimer's, and is being cared for at home by his wife. And he offered the concept that maybe sudden death is better all around, especially for friends and family, than waking up every morning not knowing who or where you are, or how long you will be that way. 

And I thought "I'll take what's behind door #3". Except we aren't really given a choice, are we?
