Death and excellent lines

My grandfather died this past week. Upon being told, his 95-year-old sister, my Auntie Betty, said, "Ahhhh... Now the rot sets in." Referring, presumably, to the fact that somehow she, he and their brother George had all lived well into their nineties. Pretty chilling, huh?
My grandfather's last words were slightly less poetic but nevertheless fairly dramatic:
"Who're you!?!"
