Larry Churchill, for inviting me to write this book. It has been a challenging and rewarding endeavor.

Kathy Cerminara, of Nova Southeastern University Law School, for her amazing grasp of end-of-life law and her willingness to share it so readily in answer to my e-mails with the subject line “quick question—,” although there are really no quick answers in this field.
