Your thoughts about this video

    

Sharon Fitzpatrick
A very moving video. Two very dear friends and one very dear man that will be taking the very hard choice of ending his life. It must be the hardest thing to make such a decision, but it must be the right one for John. God Bless him and keep him safe.

Sarah Laws
What an outstanding video. I'd like to thank Peggy and John for sharing their story.
