Wow, MattyLeeP! You've been through so much, I can hardly imagine it! I love your answer, and the fact that you're over 80 and feisty and brave enough to be so honest and sharp-minded. Best wishes for your 110th birthday! Cheers!
Very practical and thoughtful answer--as well as a selfless one. Thanks for commenting! Cheers!
I know how you feel! There's always so much more to do than one has time for in a given day, let alone a lifetime. Good answer, kateperez! I can relate completely.
Although I always try to leave loved ones as though I might never see them again, I share your wish to tell them all that I loved them one last time. I missed that opportunity once recently, and highly regret it (I was crying too hard to say it).
That's not something that one should generalize upon--many people think many different things, myself included. What is YOUR honest answer? What would YOU think at the last moments of your life, do you suppose? That was the intent of the question.
I think that this would be my mother's thoughts, as well. Although she may worry about it, I'm fairly sure that she raised her children well enough to rise to the challenge of living without her.
