“I have never been so much at peace as I am at this moment,” said Wahl, from his bed at Hospice Huntsville. “I’ve always considered death to be a part of living. I’ve never shied away from it. I’m looking forward, with a lot of curiosity, to seeing what’s at the end of the tunnel. Even if I find there’s no light there, I’ve been a spectator of the universe and that in itself is reward enough.”
Part of Wahl’s peace came from knowing he’s taken care of his funeral arrangements, finances and the home he shared with his wife, Astrid, to help make the transition easier on her.
