    to go, do you want to know or it be sudden ?

    I pick sudden but having a few months to get your affairs in order is not a bad thing

    I'd prefer sudden. Saying goodbye would be too hard.

    Well, I'm torn.
    There is a lot to be said for not lingering.
    And,
    this is a lot to be said to have time to destroy things you don't want other people to know about.

    I’m going with both...I’m dying of natural causes (what does that actually mean??) at about 104. So long and drawn in the sense I’m old and sudden in that it’s just gonna happen one day.

    I'd much rather know a little in advance so I can have time to say goodbye.

    Definitely sudden. I don’t want to be hooked up to machines for months on end.

    I want a bit of time. I want to say good bye. To say everything I want to say to my family. Hug them all and laugh and tell stories. Plus, I need all the help I can get, I'll need to talk to a Priest first and give a good confession :):)

    As hard as it was the last month with my Dad, I am SO glad I had that month to say good bye. So many people think that there isn't any dignity in dying. But, wow, my Dad has so much dignity and grace. Even with his memory messed up due to the cancer!!

    Maybe a day or two of notice since my kids are still young. There’s a few things i would want to tell them beforehand.

    If they were older i would want sudden.
