    Coco Chanel

    Bing Crosby
    Crosby was advised to never play more than a 9-hole golf game by his physician. However, in 1977 he played 18 holes, and afterward said to his pals: “That was a great game of golf, fellas.” He then collapsed just 20 yards from the course’s clubhouse and died from a massive heart attack.

    Steve Irwin
    “Don’t worry, they usually don’t swim backwards,” said Irwin of stingrays while filming a segment for his daughters show. The “Crocodile Hunter” famously died from a freak stingray accident. Stingrays are one of the most docile bottom feeders, with only 17 deaths total worldwide.

    Buddy Rich
    Rich, the legendary drummer, died after surgery in 1987. As he was being prepped for the surgery, a nurse asked him, “Is there anything you can’t take?”
    He replied, “Yeah, country music.”

    Farrah Fawcett
    Farrah Fawcett died On June 25, 2009, the same day as Michael Jackson, following a battle with cancer.

This is what cancer is.”

    Prince Rogers Nelson
    Just five days before his shocking death, musician Prince appeared at what would be his final concert. Prophetically, he said to the crowd, “Wait a few days before you waste any prayers.” The statement was made to address a recent trip he’d made to the hospital.

    Television’s original Superman uttered these words to friends shortly before he committed suicide. The following year, he was awarded a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard.

    Donald O’Connor
    O’Connor was a singer, dancer, and actor who once hosted the Academy Awards (in 1954). On his deathbed, he quipped “I’d like to thank the Academy for my lifetime achievement award that I will eventually get.”

    When the civic activist was on his deathbed, his daughter told him to switch to a more comfortable position to facilitate his breathing. His response was “A dying man can do nothing easy.”

    even though I am secular, I am always moved by the words of people, on their deathbeds, who anticipate a joyful reunion with loved ones who passed earlier.

    thank you.
