What is important?

This has been a very strange week. A week ago last Thursday, a friend died leaving me with the role of executor. For the week he was in hospital up to his death, I had for the first time to focus on what having medical power of attorney actually meant. I hardly had time to think about his progress towards death - a death that he had longed for to end his pain and reunite him with his wife and parents.

I watched a life slip so easily away. And began to reflect on what was important at the end.

I have no answers - just questions.
