Some recent messages referred to Elizabeth Hannah, but a Strathspey
archive search fails to reveal any messages explaining her situation.

Through Google I found the following immensely moving article

http://www.healthzone.ca/health/article/636611

May I express my deep sympathy with her, and with all others who face
a similar situation.

The situation in the Netherlands is better than in most countries,
but not so simple as is sometimes assumed. People who choose for a
voluntary end to their lives must make repeated consistent and
convincing requests, and at least two doctors must agree that the
request should be accepted. Obviously a person suffering from
dementia can never make such requests. This can lead to tragic
situations similar to those described in the article.

Greetings,

Eric Ferguson
