The decisions are complex, nuanced and unpredictable. There is no way to predict what will be asked of us and no way to insure that we will be clear what decisions to make.

Only looking back did he realize that their deaths could have been eased if he had known they were in their dying time and he'd been able to say no to some of the options presented to him.

Exploring ways to recognize when it's time to stop prolonging life and start letting it go has become his life's work.
