Passing II

I think the person witnessing the passing of the person who had no one to witness it would have to be someone completely unknown to the person dying. That way the witness could learn about the person’s life in the final moments of their life. It could be a construction or it could be the truth.

Obviously the person dying would have to want their passing witnessed.

But if  a baby doesn’t know it’s alive except by human touch, where does that leave the dying?

I wonder if there’s any reassurance for someone dying who has no one to know someone would be present. Or would it be an empty gesture if that person had never been present for the entirety of the actual life?
