    He died peacefully.

    Was an important pioneer in de-mystifying death and an advocate for letting people pass in dignity..not in agony.

    He put that off for a long time for someone who thought it was such a great idea.

    I never liked the man.

    Mostly because he did not believe in the rule of law. He was no better than someone who bombs abortion clinics when it comes to respecting the law.

    May he now rest in peace.

    I have mixed feelings on Assisted Suicide. If it is the choice of the patient, I can be persuaded, what has always concerned me is the quick step from assisted suicide to euthanasia so that the grandson can get his hands on the inheritance sooner rather than later.

    That's a valid concern that needs to be taken into consideration if any legislation is introduced to allow this.

    That is and has always been the issue that has concerned me in this question. I have watched people I love die when there was absolutely nothing that could be done for them. Letting them go in peace is not as hard for me to wrap my arms around, but I can see the potential abuses that might come out of legislation that is not well written.

    He provided a service people wanted. He was sought out...he did not seek people out.
