    You would be able to spend a week with a friend or family member who has died for one week..

    after that week you would be guaranteed lifetime of happy memories....

    but it would mean cutting your life by one year....

    One year would be a bargain. I wouldn't think twice making that deal for 5 years also! (maybe even more)

    Yes, I wouldn't think twice. My mom died when I was 21, she was 48. As I'm pushing 40, 48 really doesn't seem as old as it did then.

    Imagine if your lost loved ones gave up a year of their life so that they could spend a week with someone. However, the answer still should be yes.

    But wouldn't it make the sadness so much worse when that week was over? It would be like having that person die all over again.

    what about the fact that you will lose one year of time spent with your children?

    not everyone will live to be 90 a year so one year could make a huge difference in someone you love's life
