My father passed away this morning, quietly and while his caregiver’s back was turned. That was my dad, he wouldn’t have wanted anyone hanging over him crying. “I don’t want to be a burden” and “Don’t make a fuss”.
I’m really OK. Dad went on his terms the way he wanted. He missed mom every day since she died in June 2009 and all he’d wanted was to join her. He’s with family that had gone before, his parents and a cousin dad had idolized when he was a kid. Andy drowned as a young man and dad still talked about him.
Anyway….. This got me thinking. End of Life issues after a disaster or after society has collapsed. Or any other event where there aren’t any doctors or funeral homes in operations.
What do you think about this? What are your thoughts, ideas or questions?
