Kicked the bucket. Croaking it.
Pushing-up daisies.
Passed over, on, away.
The D-word.

We have no shortage of names for it, but when faced with death we are often lost for words. 
Our superstitions, fears about dying and the discomfort we feel, affect our approach and experiences of the end of life. We reckon it's time for an upgrade on how we go about our dying matters.
