If I die a writer: "Damn, now there's never going to be another book by her"
If I die a painless death at old age: "Hey, at least she lived a full life, you can't really complain"
If I die catching a bullet for somebody else: "Let's hope it was worth it"
If I die a mother: "She was always there for us and taught us so much and stayed with us long enough to see her grandchildren"
If I die as a result of a mad science experiment: "Well, if you tell me that curiosity killed the cat, I say only the cat died nobly.” (with apologies to Arnold Edinborough)
If I die in an accident leaving behind an otherwise healthy body: "Harvest time!...She donated all of her organs, so let's get cracking!"
