David McCuster has an excellent story about death:
Finally they all have the planned drinks. A drink for Miriam.
Which reminds me that this past Sunday I talked briefly with a guy at church who is about 75. A WWII vet. He is slowly recuperating from some surgery and speaks like he has a throat condition.
I asked him how it was going and without a hint of sadness, he said “I’m just waiting for the Lord.”
