I have only about a months tolive, according to medical experts. I have not particularlyLived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even myself) but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was theonly thing I cared for But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have make all the money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second chance to cometo this world i would live my life a different way from how I have lived it.Now that God has called me, I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as IWant this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth.
