An aspect of her has been out visiting family members the last few days. Pulse now ‘thready’. Heart rate up. Breath measured and drawn.

Pulse, thread-like this morning. Breath, gasping. I wonder what her experience is right now? We, as the living, would have a much different experience than her, watching her, grieving her or simply just waiting for that death moment. When my father died at home from esophageal cancer and he had made the decision to have his feeding tube removed it took about three days for him to die. Eventually he went into a coma (a combination of starvation and opiates) and quite soon after that, died. But his body did continue to function up to that point, as if its great mission was to keep the cells fed with oxygen so that the heart could keep pumping and thus the machine would keep working. I think it would be so much better if we could simply put our attention on the body ceasing its labors and we could stop the machine and simply move on to whatever might, or might not, come next. ..Remember, our mortal state; How frail our lives! how short the date! Where is the man that draws his breath, Safe from disease, secure from death? While we see whole nations die, Our flesh and sense repine and cry; Must death forever rage and reign? Or hast The Unified Field made mankind in vain? ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <emily.mae50@...> wrote : 146 Hallelujah - First Ireland Sacred Harp Convention, 2011 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hTYb1WZ9Uo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hTYb1WZ9Uo 146 Hallelujah - First Ireland Sacred Harp Convention, 2... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hTYb1WZ9Uo 146 Hallelujah, led by Morgan Cavanagh at the first Ireland Sacred Harp convention, March 5th & 6th, 2011 Recordings by John Hough and studen...

A type of a saint, she is a totally good and effective person in life the kind of person who always brings good to and out of people everywhere she goes. She is the kind of person Ollie points to here as a cultivated person by virtue of how it is expressed in life. A life well lived. She recently turned a robust 96 and just a little while ago had some small strokes or bleeds in her head that sent her through to hospital emergency rooms and thence neurology but was able to return home to her assisted living quarters. Small bleeds continued and she declined to a level where hospice was engaged for her. She is down to the end and it is not easy at all. Head, joints, muscle strictures, eyes everything. She is in the throes of death. Thank the Unified Field for morphine and such. Is interesting to see how a public concern now over abuse of prescription narcotics has complicated the use of drugs to mitigate extreme pain. Pain receptors and balancing preserving a conscious life, physiological life, a comfort without suffering, and yet not intentionally over-dosing, until finally the heart stops its work. "Thy last expiring agony, Thy fainting pangs and bloody sweat. Her work is not over yet tonight. Maybe tomorrow. And let this feeble body fail, And let it faint or die; My soul shall quit this mournful vale, And soar to worlds on high,
