Watching a loved one's memory disappear is so difficult but maybe it's even worse to watch a family member's body slowly wear out when their brain is still very sharp. Trip after trip to the hospital, the day to day pain, waiting for their last chapter to end. I vote for crossing the finish line at the same time.
