Birth is a beautiful experience. We plan it, take classes and try and make it the best it can be for the baby, the mother and whoever else is involved. Sometimes birth is planned in the form of a c-section. Sometimes pain management is desired. Sometimes it happens in a bath. Sometimes it happens at home. Sometimes we can't control the circumstances, sometimes we can!
Why can we not do the same for death? Death can be a beautiful transcendent experience too. It will happen to all of us. Lets try and make the best of it.
