Joyce Vincent was 41 years old when she was found dead in her UK home in 2006, but she was 38 when she died. For three years, from 2003-2006, her body lay surrounded by Christmas gifts she was planning to wrap; the television still on. How does this happen? Think about the people in your lives and think about whether or not there are any changes that you would want to make about the degree of connected-ness,....think about life, death and loneliness.

I agree with you, Venkatachari, but in this day/age, many people live alone. Life gets so busy for others. It's an "everyone for themselves" kind of world. I admire the Indian and Latin American cultures where multiple generations live together.
With those kind of health issues, was there not a nurse living with her? I am just baffled when I hear stories like this. Life gets so busy for everyone, and our loved ones get forgotten. Sad, although I suspect it will happen to me, as well.
SB Bella....LOL!! Thanks 4 the laugh! U're so right!! LOL..."when they're looking 4 food, clean clothes, $$ or a ride somewhere. I visualize them stepping over my body 2 get 2 the TV....LOL
The part about your son sounds all too familiar. I may hear yelling like, "Mom, there is no food in the house." This basically means "there is nothing except a loaded fridge with food that I have to cook and I don't want to do that. Can you do it?"
@Gina that is exactly my point... Children!!??
