' < •' From Wire Service Reports T ADVICE <:$ Readers say people should have the right to die Dear Readers: The mail on suicide continues to overwhelm me. Here's more from the real authorities on what people think — you, my readers. $ From California: That letter from "Anonymous in Missouri" moved me deeply. I watched the two most important people in my life die very slow, painful and undignified deaths. My mother, who fought a 15-year battle with cancer, died weighing 60 pounds. The church was standing- room only at her memorial, but not one of those people had the courage to visit Mom inner final days. The second death was the love of my life, whom I watched die from AIDS. There was nothing dignified about bathing him or feeding him. We talked ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. many times about assisted suicide, but in the end, there just wasn't time. Suicide is an intensely personal option, and no one should condemn that choice. Staunton, Va.: I nursed my college-professor husband for two years when he had cancer. I saw a bright, intelligent person become a near vegetable. Now I am watching my sister drag through long days and nights with her stroke-victim husband. This is not for me. I have other plans. Lehigh Acres, Fla.: I'm 71 and active. I've had a stroke, but my mind is sharp. I love my children and grandchild dearly. In hopes of helping them understand my actions, I am putting your column and a copy of this letter with my insurance policy. Potomac, Md.: I watched my mother suffer with Alzheimer's for six years in a nursing home. She begged God to put her out of her misery. She did not recognize me or anyone else. We do not treat animals the way we treat our loved ones. Mom was in one of the best nursing homes in the TV TONIGHT country and had the best care, but I know she would not have wanted her last years to be filled with these indignities. Human beings should have the right to die when living becomes unbearable. Lincoln, Neb.: I am only 16, but I know someday I will be old, and I don't want to be bedridden or under the care of others as my grandmother was. She was only 69 when she died. She fought cancer for years. If that happens to me, I will call on that doctor in Michigan. . Boone, Iowa: Too many people treat death like it must be avoided at all costs. Physicians feel a patient's death is their personal failure. Families feel they must ask that "everything be done" to keep loved ones alive. Often, this results in a beating heart and lungs that are maintained by machines. This is not life. New Port Richey, Fla.: A dear friend of mine suffered longer than she should have. They put her on life support after a terrible stroke. She begged with her eyes for someone to increase the morphine and let it be over. My son has promised me tfiat if I am ever in that shape, he will do it;" Northridge, Calif.: Toward the enif of my mother-in-law's terminal illness^'She was in a fine nursing home. The 'l^st night she was conscious, I sat by her bedside and was able to see firsthand how much loving care she received. Mahy staff members stopped by during the;Wee morning hours to share their concern. Even the janitor was at her bedside checking on her condition. The wariftth and love surrounding her that night ^ill be forever a wonderful memory. '' I hope "Anonymous in Missouri" w!ill set aside her gloomy prediction on ; 'becoming elderly and visit some retirement and assisted-living facilities to witness a more positive picture of the future. 6he dear friend of ours is 90 and in a retirement home. She is so busy with activities that we have to book in advance to tafce her out to dinner.
