The future is uncertain and the end is always near. I don't want to think
about the expiration date of mine or any one I know. I know that I can't
get out alive. I guess I'll keep on doing what I can when I can,
that's all I can do.
I have come near to death several times, and I don't fear it. I often say
that, to me, death is like graduation, a time of relief and joy. My only
worries are "the finals."
