If you need emergency assistance in the United States, call Suicide Prevention at (800) 273-8255 or the Veterans Crisis Line at (855) 238-5745. Otherwise call 911 or your local emergency number.

For my personal views dealing with suicide which I have called SE (Self Execution) please read and share my book if you believe it can help others. Download The Survivor's Guide to Self Execution right now!

This is a specially formatted version of the Survivor's Guide for PDF readers so you can read it on almost any device. Check your app store for a free PDF reader.

It is also available in paperback at Amazon.com. Buy one for a friend (especially one without a computer or cell phone!).

You are here


If you had to care for someone whose life was slipping away
what all would you do, what would you say?
Would you read them a book? Would you sing them a song?
Knowing all the while they don't have very long.
Would you hold their trembling hands or moisten their dry lips?
Would you help them eat or drink only in sips?
When it comes to Hospice there's so much to do
and the care givers Love must be through and through.
For there will be times when their patience wears thin
dealing with on coming dementia as they're nearing their end.
Seriously this is a job I couldn't take
for I'd attach to their pains and my heart would break.
So here's a big "Thank You" to those in this position
May you be Blessed for helping the ill with their transition.
Always remember the Love and Care you selfishly gave
helped calm your patients as they awaited the grave...
