    Excellent vid. I’m glad that you are sharing this. Death and dying is part of living. I’m lucky that my family is very open to discussing this. There is nothing impolite about the topic of death. It’s good for family and friends to be around as we prepare for our death. In a way, we are teaching them.
    Blessings.

    Lovely — especially the recasting of the “death rattle” as a sign of relaxation/unconsciousness for the dying person. Thanks for sharing this and continuing to share your own experience so honestly.
