Connecting people to machines and pumping them full of meds while their quality of life is minimal, so that we don't have to say goodbye is incredibly selfish. Not saying this is what happened here, but it is what happened to my grandfather and seems to be far too common. He had a DNR but my uncle refused to tell the doctors about it. They were absolutely livid when they finally found out.
I'm sure that her finding some peace is small consolation to you, but I hope that you do find some peace and are able to heal.
Look again at that dot. That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
