When someone is terminal and has only so long to live, family and friends have the time to say goodbye and make best use of the time left. They have the time to prepare for the death of their loved one and friend.
If you think about it, we are all going to die one day. It may be many years away, but death will occur. Wouldn’t it be something if we looked at each life as terminal, realizing that even if the death is many years away we have the chance each day to make best use of the time together. Consider the possibilities!
