There are those of us who are going to die alone without having anyone who loves them intimately, without ever having received the kind of love your Story Corps stories celebrate, without family in the room wanting them to live or grieving them when they die. I came extremely close to dying a few years ago, and there was no one to say "Please forgive me" to, nor "Thank you", nor "I love you". One can die very well without any of that. I will die well, as I would have died then, because I love, not because I have been loved.I see that I am commenting about a re-run. Well, I have listened to myself at least.
