 scared? no. death doesn't scare me. it makes me sad to think of dying too early, because yes my kids need me, but i know they'd live just fine without me. i have a great family. but, i'm not ready to go. there are too many things i have left to do for me.

I'm not afraid. I don't avoid things.

For sure don't avoid things. When its your time, it is your time & you can't avoid it. So stop living, makes no sense. I mean, don't walk out in front of a bus doing 70, LOL. But otherwise, no way. 

I had a will, a living will & a plan for my son when he was younger, but otherwise, no. I lived life. I would never stop riding a motorcycle with my husband, flying alone? This one I don't understand, wouldn't flying together be more scary? Parents usually fly alone when they are worried so that one of the parents will be there for the kids.

If both my husband and I died my brother would get our children.  I know that they would raise them right.  I have absolutely no fear of death but I do know that me dying would be very hard on the children. That is what I fear.

I don't see a poll.

I'm not afraid of death.  I'm not afraid of leaving my kids behind since they are young adults now.
