  • Epilogue

    I view death by thinking about life. I want to live a life that leaves behind a positive legacy. I believe in heaven and a supreme being. My soul will find peace. Of course, I want the good death in the year of 2094. At the end of a long life: Peaceful, quick, in familiar surroundings, with family, without pain. I will make a living will. I do not want my family to make that choice: I will make it for them. My advance directives will be no life support if I am brain dead.
