Relax, Richie, death is nothing more than a permanent loss of consciousness. For me the hard part is the dying process and the fact that once one losses permanent consciousness there is no way that one can ever know that one once lived and what we call died. Therefore one becomes robbed of one’s knowledge of having all one’s cares and physical pain go bye bye — bummer.
