been there / done that
I know - it's sort of flippant / but we all HAVE to die. This kind of program very much helped me and my sister - Helped My Mom when she was coming to the end of Her Life. So we and she (and our families) did not have to go through The American Way of Dying. Kaiser Permanente did a very fine job in the Second/Third stage of a cancer fight (Is that 'supose to be The Big "C" ?)

Well / things happen (stage 4 untreatable). So we did not 'fight for her life' in a ICU/Chemo ward. Thank heaven / thank GOD. We helped her 'finish out' "living her life".

'cause now I know how I want-to-go-out!
My mom died in an assisted living studio apt. She had her grandson, playing piano for her, the preceding evening. I think he had 'held her hand'.

Peace & Love. (thanks for all "the Emilys" around)
