Man Surrounded By Loved Ones Feels Awkward Being Only Person Dying

BOSTON—Surrounded by his closest family and friends in his final hours, local man Doug Keller told reporters Friday that he felt a bit embarrassed to be the only person in his hospital room who was dying. “It’s pretty weird that it’s just me,” said Keller, 58, adding that he felt “a little on the spot” as the lone individual in the group who was about to succumb to pancreatic cancer and breathe his last breath. “I can tell they’re all focused on it. It’s just, like, hanging over everything. Everyone else is in decent enough health, and here I am slipping away. I feel like an idiot.” At press time, Keller was no longer feeling self-conscious despite being the only person on his way to the morgue.
