Listening to every heart
He does not want us to remember him in ill health.
Not only did my brother say that to me, but my mother as well. I believe that images mean a lot to the dying...if it is sudden, then, of course, there's nothing that can be done about last images.
But when the dying person has a choice? That you are honoring that choice tells me of your greatest love for him. This, I know, and this, I appreciate. I know how hard it is, yes. But, my dear friend, it is also one of the greatest gifts, to honor one's last wish.
My prayers continue to be with you, and yours.
