The dying person always consoles every one else
My uncle passed away last night and he apparently was happy to go. He was a strong man who had lots of pride, when i went to say good bye i saw still that strong man laying there struggling to breath, i kept trying to take deep breaths for him i felt stupid.
I started to cry i was desperately trying not to as i gave him a hug, as i leaned in he said please dont cry i am ready, which of course made me sob even more, he said to me that you have to stop smoking just look at me never smoked a day in my life and just look at me dying of lung cancer please just try....
I promised him then and there that i would stop and he said just try please, then he said just look at me never smoked and drank and dying of smokers disease shouldnt have bothered should have just smoked and drank me life away!!!!!!!!
i felt terrible like it should have been me there as i have chose that dreaded lifestyle of smoking and i am healthy well as healthy as you can be as a smoker.....
To you my uncle Brian i give thanks for knowing you you were and always will be my inspiration to be a better person, to be as strong as you would be an honer....good bye . . . . .
