This edition: The Deathbed
Original tape date: January 1, 1999.
In the last century, the scene of the deathbed drama has moved, overall, from home to hospital. Still, even surrounded by technology, the deathbed scene remains emotional for those who participate. We meet a young man who loses his mother to cancer, a couple who lose their five-year-old daughter, and a young widow who recounts the final serene days of her husband's battle with leukemia.
