Gramp & VSED [EOL in Art 116]

In Mark and Dan Jury’s 1976 photography book Gramp, they chronicle the death of their grandfather.  He apparently hastened his death by VSED.

“Throughout Gramp’s last few weeks, Dee was determined to give him every chance to change his mind. Consequently, many times during each day, she would prepare some kind of nourishment and take it into his room, patiently imploring him to eat and drink.”
