Last Words

"She is squeezing my hand!" -- Inventor and futurist Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983). In the period leading up to his death, Fuller's wife had been lying comatose in a Los Angeles hospital, dying of cancer. It was while visiting her that he made the above exclamation. He then stood up, suffered a heart attack and died an hour later. His wife died 36 hours later.
