I don't think so. I hope I die in relative comfort, and don't make a mess, but given a choice, I'd rather die alone. I certainly don't want anyone weeping over me.

Dying is a very private matter; it's not like you can take your friends with you.
Some people want loved ones to ease them through the transition. They are saying goodbye too.
