Mike was an excellent writer but his final episode was the writing he did as the final chapter in his life.
Having worked for a hospice and hospitals I have seen this final chapter many times. My admiration for Mike is how he handled it. No more chemo, maybe just a couple of weeks to live, but lets not keep playing this game! Lets make the most of what is left. I don't want to continue being racked with pain, losing all the body functions I have, and not being able to say goodbye when the end comes. That is where the courage is and I have always admired those who I know who played the game this way. It was a winner!
