    She didn't make it.

    She had the biggest heart. She gave the most purely unconditional love of anyone I've ever known, or will ever know.

    Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it

      or
      do you mean she didn't hang around for others?

        Sorry, Anna.
        TRUST
        is a fragile thing.

        Easy to break, Easy to lose
        and one of the hardest things to
        ever get back.

            If you don't have a health directive, make one.

            If you have one and you haven't looked at it in a while, take it out and see if it still says what you want it to say.

            Make sure that once you've made it that your doctor and hospital have it on file, and everyone in the family who should have a copy has one, so that your wishes are respected.

                Sorry to hear that Anna. The Word tells us;

                James 4:14 Modern English Version (MEV)

                14 whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? It is just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.
                He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

                  I guess one insensitive post wasn't enough.

                  The doctors did their job, they did an excellent job, and they knew when it was time to let her go and I agreed with them. There's more to the story than that, but I'm not going to talk about it with you. But everyone who cares about how and when they go should have a health directive in place with the doctor and with the hospital. Don't rely on anyone else to do that for you.

                        I always tried to get clients coming for wills to have Directives and durable power of attorney included. It's just the kindest thing you can do for your family.

                            Everyone has their own beliefs on the matter. The important thing is to make sure your wishes are known and controlling. It can save grief on the part of your loved ones.

                                Yes, it is. Thank you.

                                Again, yes - it is. Don't make them guess what you would have wanted or not wanted, and don't allow the opportunity for your wishes to not be carried out in a timely manner or at all.
