My father always talks of the dead.

He is not there yet.

I dread it.

I've reached an age when I see people pass.

I don't look forward to it.

There are several ways to look at it.  

It happens to the best of us.

Life would be meaningless without death.

There are worse things than death.

And my most favorite of all;  You don't have to like it, you just have to do it.

Ed,

I don't think it's right around the corner, but who knows?

I intend to live fully.  When I go, I hope I don't see it coming.

My father's death will hit me hard.

Oh hell. I died once. It wasn't that bad. I'd do it again.

I feel better, better get a bucket.........

Have you fed the tiger dear? Yes, I fed it a couple of Jehovahs Witnesses but it left the bloody pamphlets!...............

 

The fun and irreverence is lost forever, now there’s always some twit that’s so morally outraged. Sad.

A sad day for Python fans everywhere. Vale Terry Jones

Looking on the bright side; I await, with indecent anticipation, Cleese's eulogy. Should it be anything like the one he gave for Graham Chapman, then it will be worth the wait.

A touch macabre, but appreciated:lol:

these guys were brothers for sure but Chapman was Cleeses' writing partner for many many years and hence his eulogy for Chapman had deep feelings across the spectrum and his performance of the eulogy was as much a cathartic act as it was an homage to an inspired super smart silly man

we are unlikely to see such a thing again

palin will do the heavy lifting on this one I predict

One wonders who is to assume Mr Jones long held and oft expressed concerns for the baggage retrieval system they've got at Heathrow?

For me the top 2 are Brian's mother (post 28) and Mr. Creosote.  Thanks for all the laughs, job well done.
