I was listening to an interesting TED talk by Tom Brokaw recently. It was Tom being interviewed by his daughter on a number of topics and one of his comments stopped me cold. He observed that “Unfortunately, I don’t know a lot about my living will. In fact, I’m not even sure where it is at this point.”

Death and dying often can be a very uncomfortable topic to discuss, and yet, having a conversation with our loved ones is an important and healthy thing to do.David Shute, MD
