PostSubject: Showtimes series: Time of Death   Wed Nov 27, 2013 11:31 am

Showtime has a new documentary series called "Time of Death." It follows the lives of people in their last months or weeks of living. It's very interesting and worth watching. So far most of the stories have been about people that are non-religious and it's been touching to see how they tie up loose ends and make amends without a spiritual prescription. Also, there's an interesting story about how a family falls apart when they begin to lose their mother. I could relate to this one and wish I had seen this series when my mother was dying, since her illness and death, unfortunately, brought out the worst in my family--like a bad divorce.

That is very sad when death in a family brings out the worse,My assistants dad died a couple of weeks ago,and I think it has brought out the best in her as she tries to comfort her family,her long lost brother turned up on the night their dad died he was banished from the family,but they took him back with open arms and he told them their dad had been secretly seeing his son dad grandchild, they were all pleased and bridges have been built.
My other at the moment story is of the lady I wrote about a few weeks ago who we call the religious lady, as she always talks of her retreats, that she leads and her work with God,I tease her a bit ( well quite a bit) and she does laugh a bit more now I built her a library for her religious books (it was a big library)now she wants a few additions in another room. She called round to see me yesterday,waving and smiling I always give her a quick hug when I see her, she dare not risk the religious talk any more, but she called round specially to ask me how my friend was,who is dying of motor neurone disease is getting on,she had been thinking about him and praying for him and offered to go and sit with him if I am stretched for time.i was very touched by this,and greatly respect her natural kindness and tenderness and indeed how she lives her religion
