A physician acquaintance of my age did not wake up yesterday morning. His coronary arteries looked surprisingly normal. Not much else to see except some minor evidence of good living. These things are difficult to explain to those who have watched Quincy and his contemporary derivatives.
My motto is nil nisi veritas. Sometimes that leads to disappointment in those who sit on the other side of my desk.
I can, however, with a straight face, opine that suffering was minimal and maybe absent, which sometimes helps.
