Author/blogger Bobbi Shepp shares a profound perspective on “death with dignity” by posting the tribute to her father’s unswayed legacy of courage and hope.

In the aftermath of my father’s death, I was reading through several journal entries. I wrote this one in response to the recent buzz about the “Death with Dignity” movement. I wanted to share Dad’s story of dignity and courage as he tirelessly fought his own battle with cancer. We had this printed in the programs at his memorial service:

DIGNITY AND COURAGE

Courage is waking up in the morning and choosing to live another day, not because he feels he has the right to make that choice, but because he knows his Creator has given him another breath to breathe for the glory of His kingdom.

He breathes each breath with dignity because he knows they bear eternal value.

Courage is fighting to take those breaths despite the pain that accompanies each one.

Courage is waking up to a day full of unknowns, and dignity is facing them with a quiet peace in knowing the God who is ultimately in control of them all.
