"We all want a good death — a death where we’re surrounded by the people we love and don’t feel any fear or pain. A good death is what Ron Deprez wanted when his body became ravaged by ALS… and thanks to his daughter, Esmé, and Maine’s death with dignity legislation, that’s exactly what he got. In this episode, Esmé Deprez shares her father’s story with us."
Gerald's note: The story of a family farewelling their father as he leaves this world on a day of his choosing, in an environment he loved, and surrounded by family.
