My father passed away a week ago Sunday, after battling Stage 4 cancer for 21 months. I saw him take his last breath, and it was both sad and beautiful at the same time.
I will talk about the sadness, and the beauty, later. For the time being, though, I plan to focus on the funny. Because deaths affect families, and family interaction is (at least in my personal experience) inherently funny - perhaps never more so than during times of stress.
