Lucky, lucky man. That's exactly the way I hope to go. No long, painful decline
- just a sudden "that's it". Hard for the survivors, but the best possible
world for the deceased.

My ideal in this affair is Bing Crosby, who similarly collapsed and died after
a satisfying round of golf in Spain. Can't beat that for a great send-off.

But most of us are denied that favor and suffer.

Cheers, Bob
