don’t think a recent letter writer should be proud of his aged mother for committing suicide. Instead, he should feel grief that it came to that. She did not want to be re-admitted to a hospital. Hospice members will come to the home to offer solace and comfort during one’s last days. Suicide: It did not have to come to that.
