March 27, 2014

Autonomy is important for most residents of the Mountain State. We would rather make decisions for ourselves than put important choices in the hands of attorneys, hospitals or even relatives....

Even registered end of life documents are not set in stone. There have been cases where an attorney got involved, and the whole process was bogged down when the case went to court over disconnecting life support machines from a family member. Oddly enough, the case lasted longer in the courts than the person in question. The matter came to a conclusion when the patient suddenly passed away, and the party who started the suit ended up spending thousands of dollars, and the only one who gained, was their attorney.

Do everyone in the family a favor and let things take its course. God knows when a person is supposed to die, so stop trying to postpone the inevitable.

Funerals are unpleasant enough without having the whole family in an uproar before a person passes away. Oh, and while we're on the subject of funerals. Why in the world would anyone post a high school photo of a 94 year old elderly person who passed away in the obituary? Doesn't it make more sense to use a recent photo?

Agree it's a good idea. But TopGun's correct that greedy lawyers need to stay out of it. Once a LEGAL document is filled out/signed by a person, there should NOT be any way that document could be considered VOID by a stupid relative. One's wishes written on a legal document should be the prevailing END of conversation!!!

Our society has now made 'legal documents' not even legal or binding anymore. Only one that comes out with a win in such situations is LAWYERS! Is why they advertise "putting thoughts" in the heads of people to 'sue' this one or that one for things they would never have thought of doing 'before' those dispicable $$-grubbing lawyer ads!! It's all about lawyers getting rich off other's problems, situations, and/or subliminal advertising 'suggestions.'

Thanks to liberal 'activist' judges, NO legal document is legally binding any longer. They've corrupted the justice system.
