Somewhere far away there is one new person born

At approximately 5pm Wed October 25 2006 Thailand time I watched a man die. His name was Ludwin Fischer, and before this we had met for only 2 minutes, one month before. But for his last 15 minutes, and many of the days since I have been deeply involved. I have served his family as faithfully as I can, and I hope that this entry will provide only comfort for them, and some for me. None of the information here is new to them. I've been incapable of blogging about anything else until I could get this off my chest, and yet I needed the families to get to a certain point, before I felt comfortable speaking about this more publicly.
