Facing the End

Jane Brody, the NYT‘s health columnist writes movingly today about her husband’s death.

Brody notes that this “Personal Health” column is very personal,

When I wrote Jane Brody’s Guide to the Great Beyond, I had no idea that I’d be putting its precepts into practice in my immediate family within a year of publication. But as I said in the book, “You never know.” You never know when your time will be up, and so it is best to prepare for the end sooner rather than later.
