Abstract:

This is a remarkable portrayal of loyalty and love. Divorced and living apart from her grown children, Elizabeth discovered she had an incurable cancer. Her strongest wish was to die in the familiar surroundings of home, close to the people she loved. Loyal friends and family shared in her care and steadfastly kept her company throughout this critical period. They alternated shifts so that she would never be without a comforter. Elizabeth s choice to die at home helped mitigate the pain of her untimely death for her survivors. They gave Elizabeth the gift of time and love when she needed it most.
