Dying for a future

It seems a long time ago that I turned 70, in fact nearly ten years ago now, but since then I find myself thinking about death far more often.

Will this be the last time I change the car? Maybe this is the last suit I will buy. I don’t think I will be visiting Scotland again. Then there are all those funerals I seem to have to attend: one a month in 2017. Whereas for most of my life death has been a taboo subject for conversation, suddenly I discover that interest in the subject is much more widespread.
