My father died in the arms of his family. It sounds kind of romantic, but it wasn’t really. We knew his death was coming. Non-operable, non-treatable cancer tends to put up a few red flags. In his last few days what we didn’t know, was when his moment of death would occur. Now, with the option legally available for individuals to choose the way in which they die, I’m not sure whether it was something he would have chosen himself. .en.
