Well technically he's been in a vegetative state for many years, having no real quality of life and this procedure was imminent. as a former nurse I never saw the use keeping people on life support or keeping them in hospice for years in a vegetative state, its a waste of money and time. death is a beautiful event in another stage of evolution, only in the west do folks want to hang on even while laid up a damn vegetable for years, I'm from the school of thought if your don't see improvement in a couple of years pull the damn plug, his illnesses he had made any quality of life impossible so death was the far more humane solution. I wonder why he cut his Indian children out his will and let the Caucasian wife and child in the will. something in the milk ain't clean, personally their family drama is like any other trifling ass dysfunctional family. all these muthafukkas need to fade to black.
