Not to be too morbid, but  . . . only the first man died peacefully in his bed. Three were victims of assassins, and the other of a sudden heart attack. “There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death . . . For man also knoweth not his time” (Ecclesiastes 8:8, 9:12).
