Ron looked at Ray just after their main course arrived and asked, “Are you ready to go?” John said he was surprised because they had just started eating. Ray then answered. “Yes!” He told the two his children were raised, the church was doing well and that he had a sense of completeness about his life. Fischer suddenly they realized that they weren’t talking about leaving the dinner table. Ron said he wasn’t ready yet. There were things he still wanted to do. When the two of them looked at John who blurted out, “I’m not even willing to entertain the question.”
