living will —

—EVA MARIA LIMBACH
My mom, then into her early nineties and in ill-health, was relieved to commit to signing over her rights. We didn't do anything without properly talking to her each time, as we still valued her caution and good judgment. But it's still a weight lifted, and if a person still has some health left, why not enjoy those last few years with a freedom by doing something consciously and out of character.
