    This was one of the more painful things I’ve read here and I can’t imagine what it would have been like to be there:

    She stoically endured various painful and depleting “last ditch rolls” (often experimental) on the theory that you should never give up, and even absent hope, perhaps something would be learned that would help someone else.

    But at the end, when there was nothing left to try, and her family gathered round, she asked “Am I dying?” and no one could bear to answer her.

    And when no one could answer, she began to weep, and she kept weeping until the strength to weep left her body, and two days later she died.

    I’ve not much to say other than to offer my condolences.Report
