What if alive and breathing didn't include the happy part? What if your memories of them being alive had been pushed aside by months of agonizing pain, disfiguring surgeries, scars, tumors, abscesses...the list could go on!
Did you see Tammy Faye just before she died on Larry King? That will be the last memory many people will have of her, but it's not the last one that her children and husband will have. They will have the image of those last few moments. Often, those are the worst memories.
I would prefer something a bit more peaceful come after
the agonal breathing stopped.
