My dear friend Janet died at home last year at age 96. In going through her papers after her death I found a letter address "to my daughters"- of which she had none - a beautiful treatise on aging and gratitude to her friends for supporting her decision to stay at home. Although her last years were progressively physically disabled, Janet continued to contribute her writitngs and vast wisdom to the local, state and notional issues that were her lifelong passion until her death, which would not have been possible had she moved to an institutional setting - she knew that and so did we . . .
