I went with unaware. I don't share the assumption that 'no pain' = 'peaceful'. Even without any physical pain, if I all of a sudden knew I was dying, with no way to prevent it, I would start freaking out. That's just knowing myself, my own thought process; everyone is different, and I can see why some people might be comfortable, even happier, knowing. I just don't think I, personally, would be capable of handling it with much peace or pleasantness or dignity. I'd hate my last moments to be like that. Death, painful or not, has always scared me. The imminence of my death is not something I ever want to feel.
