    my cousin died last week. heart attack. runs in da family.

    he woke up at 3am. he was sick. he called his sister and told her to come and get him. she said she would call the ambulance.
    he said no, "he didn't want to go out like that". he chose to sit there with a heart attack and wait for her.
    he didn't want the neighbors to see him carried out.

    so she got up and dressed and got in her car and drove to his house and put him in the car.
    he died three blocks from the ER.

    i'm sorry that he died. i wish he would have lived.

    because if he had lived and told me that lame story, i would have killed him my self.

    Brother James,

    and I agree with brother DSS, a little laughter eases the sadness... Proud man from the sounds of it.

    Bro. jamesfrmphilly I am happy to see that you have a good sense of humor about your loss. Death is a part of life and although your cousin will be missed he is still alive (just not in the physical sense)

    Sorry for you loss

    It's called dying from pride in the medical profession. You loose critical minutes that could have saved him. He is in a better place now though
