    insisted that her living will be honored.  We were fortunate that she qualified for Hospice care, meaning some legal weight behind the living will.  If the family is satisfied with the care given, isn't it possible there was a DNR in place?  I'm not sure how these things play out in large facilities, without the weight of Hospice policies to protect them.  Just a thought.  Mom died peacefully, without pain, after we took responsibility to administer her morphine following Hospice guidelines.  

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
