What is it that we fear most about death?

The pain? Our family? Financial costs? Or simply the unknown?

  • I dont fear death itself. Why fear it when you can not control it? When it is your time its your time aint nothing you can do about it. The only thing to fear is fear itself.

  • I don't know about anybody else, but for me it's the UNKNOWN.

  • I fear prolonged illness and my son being too young when I die. I have been feeling the need to make a will lately, not sure why.

  • For me, it's the unknown and leaving my DD. I would be afraid she wouldn't know who I was as a person (she is only 10 months old).

  • To some it is the unknown. Lonliness; death to some might seem like a journey they'll take by themselves. Leaving people behind. Leaving important things unfinished. The burden on your family of not having you there to pitch in. The emotional sadness of children not having their mother and a spouse not having his wife.
