If death is the end of life then there really is no such thing as death. When someone dies death lives. We have some form of death in us. A physical malady is a mixture of life and death leaning more towards either of the two sides. All living creatures share the aging "disease". The benefits of aging start slowing as we progress through life. We stop growing and start shrinking, our bodies start to deteriorate, our disease starts to lean more towards death. The truth is, everything lives. Death lives, life lives, and the "in between" lives.
