Dying of Cancer

by | Jun 12, 1997 | Priorities

Not long before a close friend of mine died of cancer, I asked him what it felt like to be forty-four and in his predicament. Among a number of things he said, “I feel angry because there was so much more I wanted to do with life. I feel bad about being so busy and not spending more time with my family.” And then, after a thoughtful pause he said, “I can’t help but wonder what I have done with my life that has been worthwhile.”
