I was talking with a close friend the other day who told me his 93-year-old mother said she was tired of living. She was ready to go to Heaven.
That revelation stung my emotions at first. Although up in age, she is fairly healthy, has a good appetite and can pretty much take care of herself. So why rush the transition?
She lost her husband a few years ago so I imagine it is loneliness feeding this desire to exit life as she knows it.
