4. What sad news. I didn't know she was ill. She brought us many good films.

My aunt always use to say that she hoped she could have a happy death. I would tell her that
sounded morbid. However, before she died she was kind of out of it. She was seeing her dead parents and her dead husband. She finally died in her sleep. I think that is what she meant. I hope Nora can have a happy death.
