"I was a registered nurse for at least 20 years. In that time, I was present as people's spirits left their bodies. Each time there was a sense of peacefulness and gratefulness that I could be part of this. Yet, when my father got a diagnosis of terminal illness, I was overcome by fear of the ramifications". "In my dad's conversation and countenance there was no fear. He knew the Lord was with him, and passed peacefully into eternal life. Perhaps this conversation about assisted suicide ['A time to be born, and a time to die', Nov. 2013, p. 4] has to do with fear. Yet God can give us strength to overcome the fear, and grace to face the end in God's time".
