FAREWELLS now in print

   "If I were a maker of books, I would make a register, with comments, of various deaths. He who would teach men to die would teach them to live." -- Montaigne. 

   FAREWELLS, your almanac of last words and last thoughts, is now available at Amazon and also from the author.  The book is a wide-ranging collection of quotes, by the famous, the near-famous, and the not-so-famous.  Some excerpts:

   “I am dying, with the help of many doctors.” – Alexander the Great.

   “I did not get my spaghetti. I got Spaghetti-Os. I want the press to know this.” – Condemned murderer Thomas Grasso, referring to his last meal.

   “In heaven all the interesting people are missing.” – Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.
