My doctoral advisor and now friend, Michael Scriven, believes that we have a duty to die when the cost to the health care system and emotional, temporal, or financial cost to our family is greater than our quantity and quality of life justifies. 

My contribution today explores the issue in a short-short story.

    Sweetie, you also have a duty to yourself if you want to save your immortal soul. I am sure your loved ones would be the first to reassure you that they would rather you pass away peacefully and naturally surrounded by friends and family and not fretting about financial costs at this time.
