If one doesn't practice remembering Krishna while one is struggling for existence, then it will not be possible for one to remember Krishna at the time of death.
A devotee knows that even at his death Krishna will protect him. The real test of our devotion will be at that time.
Death is not a big thing, what is important is God's service.
Either you are a beggar or a King, Every one has to die. Only devotee of the Lord knows where we go after death.
Every person who has taken birth in this material world is destined to meet death, which is simply a matter of changing bodies, but no one except the Krishna conscious person knows where he will be going after this change of bodies.
