If I knew I was about to die ...my last phone call would be to my mother. I would ask her to remind God that I prayed to him to take my Soul if I died before I awake. I would tell her I would be at the gate waiting for her to join me and my family that went before me. I would ask her not to miss me;but, remember me the way I was. And I would end by saying only Death can separate us for we will meet again.
