My father was in terrible pain towards the end because of his bed sores, and he did go into hospice, and I think that was better in some ways. You know, I think his death was peaceful, and it was all right. He was just in terrible pain.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Hospice means end-of-life care. The admission ticket is a diagnosis from a doctor that you have six months or less to live.
