Great philosophy of the man who will be at his own wake

It is well worth reading this from the BBC on-line magazine. Andy Fitchett, 56, has six months to live. He found out he had terminal cancer just as he was planning for a new life in Spain.

He is arranging a wake next month, which he will attend.

He says:

I'm a lucky man and have had a lucky life. Many people don't get a chance to say goodbye to people when they die but I have.

Others never live a life as long and happy as mine when they pass away. Take a 12-year-old killed in a car crash, they don't get a chance to live their life or say goodbye.

I like the cut of that man's jib!
