Ok, a bit late, but anyway.

Some last words.
"Please pardon my levity, I don't see how to take death seriously. It seems absurd."


You all do know who he is, right? Right?

Wavy Gravy once asked a Zen Roshi, "What happens after death?"

The Roshi replied, "I don't know."

Wavy protested, "But you're a Zen Master!"

"Yes," the Roshi admitted, "but I'm not a dead Zen Master."
