Sarah was a staff nurse on an inpatient HIV ward in London she talks about patients planning funerals.
“And I felt the terrible sort of unfairness of it all, and they were so young. We did go to a lot of funerals. A lot.
And this is very strange. They used to spend a lot of time planning their funerals, because they knew they were going to die.
They’d have presents. I remember one man, he bought presents for everybody, and they were all given out, presents, at his funeral. Mm.”
