How We Die Now: “Death renders all equal,” wrote Claudian. How each one of us relates to death, however, is individual, and always changing — as we mature; as we contemplate life, and death, around us; and as society changes. In this special series in the National Post, we present stories and columns looking at the different ways we see, and prepare for, the Great Equalizer. To read the complete series, click here. When Kim Darby’s mother passed away in July, she wanted to honour her mother’s memory but didn’t have a lot money for an expensive funeral. A friend recommended she take a non-traditional route by shopping for services online. “Immediately there is a relief,” said the 47-year-old from Ottawa. “Because there is nobody in your face.

True Grit, the 1969 version starring John Wayne, Kim Darby, Robert Duvall, and, regrettably, Glen Campbell, is showing at 6:30 p.m. at the Angelika Film Center Dallas, part of the USA Film Festival. Darby, who played the irrepressible Mattie Ross, is scheduled to attend the screening. True Grit is based on the brilliant, uproariously funny Charles Portis novel of the same name. The 2010 Coen Brothers remake, starring Jeff Bridges in the role of Rooster Cogburn, is far more faithful to Portis's text than the John Wayne version. But it doesn't include The Duke, with a rifle in one hand and a revolver in the other, shouting, "Fill your hand, you sonofabitch!" at Robert Duvall before charging, on horseback, reins in his teeth: • The first See's Candies store in Texas in "25 or 30 years" opens at 9:30 a.m. in Stonebrier Centre Mall in Frisco -- just in time for Mother's Day.
