I have a lot to say about one’s last days, but I won’t say anything for the simple reason that I have always seen myself as more of an observer of life rather than a participant.

I believe it requires much more courage to actually dig in and be a partisipant. This would make me unqualified to comment. I might appear to some to be too harshly clinical.
