It's a strange thing, death. Many people see it as a cruel and untimely mistress; one that ruins lives and puts a stop to love family. You see death depicted in books and films as a hooded skeleton with large scythe lingering over people full of fear and despair, laughing at the pain and suffering he causes. These depictions are wrong. Death is neither a mistress nor a hooded skeleton. Death is a man.
