The Terri Schiavo case, much debated in the news, is ongoing
because there is no Living Will in place. Who speaks for Terri
when there is no Living Will? Her husband? Her parents? The
I have a Living Will in place. It is clear that I want no heroic,
artificial means to keep me alive when all vital signs cease
to function. My family knows this, and there should be no battle
when my final days are upon me. I know I’m in the hands
of a good and loving God, and death is not my enemy. It is the
gateway to eternal life, so why should I be afraid of it?
That is the amazing message of Easter. Because Jesus lives,
we live also.That is great comfort when death nears.
Encourage your loved ones to make a Living will. Just the
act of talking about end-of-life issues brings people closer
makes it easier when the time arrives. In the meantime, live
life to the fullest today. It is truly a gift from above.
