While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the
aroma of his favorite sprinkle cookies wafting up the stairs.

crawled downstairs. With labored breath, he leaned against the
doorframe, gazing into the kitchen.

Were it not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in
heaven, for there, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen table were
