I bet it was the sight of those leggy young nurses bending over that brought that heart attack on.

Firstly VERY sorry to hear you are
suffering in this way.

What you say, I agree with 100%..

I have witnessed the two types of deaths..
among my friends, and indeed, as you say,
there is NO comparison,

the person with cancer went through all
the stages and lingered on and on.

The other lady was out shopping one
morning - laughing and talking with friends,
after lunch, of the same day she took an afternoon nap,
like she did very often, only,
this time she never woke again.

What a quiet blessing..

For us all it will be very different,
no way of telling in advance...
another of life's mysteries!

It wasn't that burger which done it. It was the previous ones. It is like the doctor who gave a terminally ill patient cigarettes. The family was mad about it, but either way, the guy was down to the last couple of weeks and quitting cigarettes then would not make the inoperable cancer which started in the lungs go away. No, the damage was too extensive to save his life. So the doctor just wanted him to go as comfortable as possible. So like the guy with the burgers, the last few cigarettes didn't kill the cancer patient. It was all the ones before that.

My Aunt died of influenza, or so they said. But its my belief they done the old woman in

Why should she die of influenza, when she come through diptheria right enough the year before. Fairly blue with it she was. They all thought she was dead. But my father, he kept ladling gin down her throat. Then she come to so sudden she bit the bowl right off the spoon.

Now what call would a woman with that strength in her have to die of influenza? And what become of her new straw hat that should have come to me?

[pause]

Somebody pinched it. And what I say is: them 'as pinched it, done her in.

I was not aware of the victim's gorging history. Still, there's nothing like a fatal blubberburger to make one comfy at the end. If he's buried, they'll need The Houston Astrodome. If he's cremated, it'll be the biggest blaze since the Chicago Fire.

Very true,
Over here in one of the major cancer hospitals,
they have a room given over to exactly that,
terminal patients who are in the last stages of
cancer can go to 'the smokers room' and smoke away..
when it doesn't matter anymore.

It's the modern most dreaded disease,
but bit by bit, eventho' slowly,
yet...they are getting there.

Thanks Grace

Part of this could have been caused by me (I was at one time a smoker) but honestly think I ended up getting this shit from all the asbestos and chemicals I was exposed to over my working career.
Either way, I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

It is sad. Some even continue to smoke through a stroma (ventilator hole). They may have lost their larynx and/or other parts of the throat and they still smoke.
