    "Any Other Name" from the American Beauty score. This is the Thomas Newman piece that's playing in the last scene after he gets killed and Lester is reflecting on his life: " I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life"

    A close second would be the main theme from the movie "Indecent Proposal"...one of John Barry's finest.

    I've obviously thought of this a lot.

    Wait! I have another deathbed fantasy and that's when Ruth dies in Fried Green Tomatoes and Idgie tells her a story as she passes away. And then someone says, "Miss MidloMel was a lady....and a lady always knows when to leave."
    OMG, please let it be just like that!

    Ripple, Dust in the Wind, Stairway to Heaven, Knockin on Heaven's Door, Wildflowers (I think that's the name of that Tom Petty song)

    I'd want to hear my children telling me that I made a positive difference in their lives.

    This... and also this thread makes me incredibly sad...
