Miss Suebee...i truly hope and pray this doesn't mean you have only six months to live. as for your question, yes, i would tell those who care about me. this gives you and them time to prepare and to have closure. if loved ones have time to prepare, your death will not be such a shock and they will heal from the grief of your loss sooner. if it were me, they way i see it is that i will be dead, but they must carry on, so i would do whatever i could to make that journey easier for those who care about me.
