to die kindly

I want to die kindly with others hearing me. I cannot give you any hard and fast rules. Just: be kind; be gentle; be loving; be wrapped in my love.

I want you to converse together—you who love me, you who are able to see me and discern what aid I need as I do my dying. Some of you may have rules inviolable for what medical procedures must be used or withheld—please cast those aside. Some of you may feel guilty and that might cause you to want things “for” me—know that I forgive you and please, cast that guilt and those things aside. See me as I am. Hear me—take in my real core needs—I am in need of dying with your caring touch.

Death is an integral—and friendly—part of our life cycle.
