Elderly Canadian couple's last act raises questions about how we die

Elderly Canadian couple's last act raises questions about how we die | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
And so the Brickendens didn't. They died holding each other's hands in a Toronto nursing home, on a day of their choosing, after a goodbye week that included a party with loved ones, a final date night at their favorite restaurant, and time with each of their children independently and together. They had time to see their grandchildren, who flew in from Switzerland, Vietnam and elsewhere to say their goodbyes. The couple toasted a life well-lived together with champagne and a last supper of hors d'oeuvres including salmon, lobster and filet mignon. It's kind of like they were able to enjoy their own memorial service before they died.
