My grandmother died of cancer (lung). She died in the early 1970s. I remember sitting at her bedside when I was 14 praying God would take her because she was so miserable. She stopped eating and weighed 72lbs. She was only 5’2” to begin with. Times have certainly changed since her death, at least for me anyway. I am more accepting of death. I have often wondered if people go through this dying process for us to let go. What do you think?
