Planning For The End: Miraculous Recovery, Little Regret

Sometimes, even thoughtful planning for the end of one's life can't foresee all the possible outcomes.

That was certainly the case for Reverend Canon Randy Dales of Wolfeboro, and his father-in-law. Canon Dales is a vocal advocate for the use of advance directives to maintain dignity in death, with his position formed by four decades of ministry and 30 years of work in a hospice he co-founded.

We continue our series on advance directives in New Hampshire with this audio postcard.
