Death is the cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living organism. Phenomena which commonly bring about death include aging, predation, malnutrition, disease, suicide, homicide, starvation, dehydration, and accidents or trauma resulting in terminal injury. In most cases, bodies of living organisms begin to decompose shortly after death.

Kind of lengthy, but good information! You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.

Death isn't just the loss of a physical form. It is the gain of the human spirit in the body. My mother passed when I was 12 years old, and it has been 6 years since I have heard her voice, but I get to see her face every day because her face is my face. I can hear her cheering me on in the back of my mind every day as I try to accomplish more and more. She never leaves my mind. Just remember when someone leaves the physical world, the memories will always be there with you, just like my mother is always with me.

Separation by Akiane Kramarik

"So many children have been lost through war, famine, slavery, kidnapping, crime, disease, accidents, suicide, miscarriage or abortion. When a child is gone, the only joy left is the memories and faith that we will see them again, and we will."

Death will come

If you are going to die no matter what, why are you afraid to live an uncomfortable life in which you "die" every day--die to comfort, and indolence, apathy and ignorance.

It was once believed that when a person dies, their nails continue to grow. This is a myth. When a person dies, their skin begins to shrink and dehydrate giving the appearance of longer nails.
