Are you afraid of death?

Not long before my mum died I asked her this question and she said yes, she was afraid and I must admit I am afraid too. It's more a case of not knowing what is out there waiting for us, if anything at all. She died very peacefully in her sleep and I don't think she knew what was going on around her and I take comfort in that. Some people have a very strong faith and believe without any doubt at all that we will go to a better world but I have doubts. Are you afraid of death or do you feel certain that there is something better out there for us? I would like to know your views.

There is always a sentence reminding me- you never know which will come first, tomorrow or accidents.

@Behindtheguitarbar Yes we should live every day as if it were our last. Make the most of our lives and always tell the people you care about that you love them.

@maezee Yes I think we're all a little afraid of something happening to our loved ones. I worry about all my family.
