Wall St. Journal:  “Less than 10 days before [my brother] died, he made me promise that I would write about him again, when his time was up, again because his story would help others. See earlier story. . . . people need to know that they can't wait to take care of the important things in their life too. I don't know how many days I've got, but once you think you can count your days, think of how bad it will be on you and your family if you haven't done the hard stuff.”
