I will follow you into the dark

From a statement by the family of conductor Sir Edward Downes and his wife Lady Joan:

"After 54 happy years together, they decided to end their own lives rather than continue to struggle with serious health problems."

Having watched as people close to me have struggled with 'serious health problems' (an accurate term but one so bland as to be almost a euphemism), I find their decision not only reasonable but also deeply moving.

Also. And more.
