TICKING AWAY By Des Barlow
Death comes to us all eventually but for Des Barlow, the end may not be long off. He suffered a heart attack five years ago and after a year on the transplant list, took the brave decision to take himself off. Des knows it's a matter of time before his ticker stops ticking but he's not afraid. And he's got a tough message for his friends and family.

Lisa Allen Go Des! We've all gotta go sometime and why not just carry on with life until that point. Have the funeral that you want!
Gwen Royle If only we could all accept our destiny with such courage and mirth! Des seems to have made peace with himself and will no doubt sing and dance into the next world. May his maker smile upon him (but not just yet!). How much better the world would be if we could all have such a positive outlook on both life and death- God Bless him!
