Dec 1st, 2019 : Dying

Everybody does it. Even you, as awesome as you are... you will too.

Quote:
All Norbert Schemm, 87, of Appleton, Wisconsin, wanted in his final moments was his loved ones beside him while he sipped a beer.
Together his family talked, laughed and reminisced before taking an image which Mr Schemm's son Tom shared with the family Whatsapp group.


Quote:
Adam said: "My grandpa had been relatively healthy over the course of his life but it was on the Sunday last week while he was in hospital that they realised it would be the end. He called his grandchildren to tell us on the Monday. We took the picture Tuesday night and then he died from stage four colon cancer on Wednesday."
"My dad told us that grandpa had wanted a beer and now when I look at that picture it gives me solace.
"I can tell my grandpa is smiling. He's doing what he wanted to do - it was an impromptu moment."

Quote:
Ben Riggs, of Indianapolis, was among the strangers who felt prompted to respond to the image on Twitter. He posted a photo of his own grandfather Leon Riggs, 86, enjoying a final cigar and beer too.


Quote:
Ben said his grandfather had had Alzheimer's and his memory would come in waves but towards the end, he and his dad felt it important to fulfil his grandfather's dying wish. "While death never comes at the right time, I think it's important to always try and find the silver lining."
Ben said the evening his grandfather died, he, his brothers and his father got together to mark the passing and celebrate the life. They took another family photo. Tragically, Ben's father Mike died unexpectedly the next day from heart failure. He says both of these final pictures have brought him much comfort.

Brigid Reilly, of Philadelphia, also responded to Adam's original tweet with an image of her grandmother Theresa Meehan who passed away in October this year from heart and kidney failure at the age of 84.
She told the BBC: "My grandmother got put on hospice care so we knew she would be passing soon.


Quote:
"Towards the end my family wanted to bring her her favourite things which included sushi, Frank Sinatra's music, all of us together, and her drink of choice which was Baileys. As she got closer to the end she requested we all do a final shot together."
Brigid said that the image was printed out and shown at her grandmother's funeral.
I was hoping to be shot in bed by a jealous husband at the age of 110, but that ain't gonna happen.

You didn't die young and go out looking good either. Bummer.
