Capo:

I'd say what a beautiful person you are to have written about your friend so eloquently.

Thanks for sharing!

True story--not travel. But our son said to his grandmother, "Mama, please don't die before you tell MOM how to make stewed corn."

Okay here's a true one that's only slightly related to travel in that it occurred on an airplane:

My husband has always maintained he wanted to go out doing "it" (use your imagination due to censors). A flight crew has a lot of time together so they get to talking--ergo his fellow medical team members were also aware of his "last wish".

Soooo, one really bad flight things were getting desperate and EVERYONE was scared stiff. My husband happened to meet eyes with his fellow flight nurse on the other side of the patient who then dramatically exclaimed, "No Way Norman, it's not THAT bad". The crew burst out laughing, breaking the tension, and obviously, they made it safely.

don't you dare die until:
you've floated along the canals of Venice
hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Piccu
explored the Galapagos Islands
kayaked through Milford and Doubtful Sounds in New Zealand
flown over Bora Bora or the rock islands of Palau
and walked a portion of the Great Wall of China
