And my last act of love will be to protect my family from repeating my experience, leave them remembering me as vibrant, not an unrecognizable shell of my former self.

My father died from brain cancer. He told me there are worse things than dying. I took that bit of advice to heart.

My FIL, who had terminal cancer, was euthanized as per his wishes with the assistance of his hospice nurse and his doctor, who changed his pain medication prescription from a specific dose, to "to comfort." The nurse complied, and he passed in his sleep a few hours later.
