See Mother Teresa: to help people die well. But the other side of dying well, the other side of the human development of virtue at this time, and integration, is the spiritual side: that we prepare to meet God. It's not a preparation for nothingness.

Excellent: dead is not just a medical event, it is a most human event. Pope John Paul II, near his death, said 'I have been preparing for this moment my whole life'.

Or the role of philosophy is to die well.

The atheist Susan Sonntag died like an animal, according to her son.

The relationship between Jesus and Mary and Joseph was perfect.
