He didn't actually look like he was going to die soon, so I told him I'd come back and check on him in a few weeks. And I totally will.
Dying wishes are one of those things you shouldn't ignore. If I was making a dying wish right now though, I don't think I'd ask to not die alone. In my opinion you've got to be more specific, at least when you're making dying wishes.
Me, for instance, I'd ask to go to Disneyland and then I'd try to die on the It's a Small World After All ride. Then, even if I was alone, I'd be surrounded by all those moving dolls singing the same song over and over.
That'd be cool.
That guy in the hospital said he is afraid of dying alone . . . eh.
