I, __________________________________________________, a
resident of the City of ___________________, ________________
County, State of _____________, being of sound and disposing
mind, memory and understanding, do hereby willfully and
voluntarily make, publish and declare this to be my LIVING WILL,
making known my desire that my life shall not be artificially
prolonged under the circumstances set forth below, and do hereby

     l.  This instrument is directed to my family, my
physician(s), my attorney, my clergyman, any medical facility in
whose care I happen to be, and to any individual who may become
responsible for my health, welfare or affairs. 

     2.  Death is as much a reality as birth, growth, maturity
and old age.  It is the one certainty of life.  Let this
statement stand as an expression of my wishes now that I am still
of sound mind, for the time when I may no longer take part in
decisions for my own future. 

     3.  If at any time I should have a terminal condition and my
attending physician has determined that there can be no recovery
from such condition and my death is imminent, where the
application of life-prolonging procedures and "heroic measures"
would serve only to artificially prolong the dying process, I
direct that such procedures be withheld or withdrawn, and that I
be permitted to die naturally.  I do not fear death itself as
much as the indignities of deterioration, dependence and hopeless
pain.  I therefore ask that medication be mercifully administered
to me and that any medical procedures be performed on me which
are deemed necessary to provide me with comfort, care or to
alleviate pain.

     4.  In the absence of my ability to give directions
regarding the use of such life-prolonging procedures, it is my
intention that this declaration shall be honored by my family
and physician as the final expression of my legal right to
refuse medical or surgical treatment and accept the consequences
for such refusal. 

     5.  In the event that I am diagnosed as comatose,
incompetent, or otherwise mentally or physically incapable of
communication, I appoint ______________________________ to make
binding decisions concerning my medical treatment. 

     6.  If I have been diagnosed as pregnant and that diagnosis
is known to my physician, this declaration shall have no force
or effect during the course of my pregnancy. 

     7.  I understand the full import of this declaration and I
am emotionally and mentally competent to make this declaration.
I hope you, who care for me, will feel morally bound to follow
its mandate.  I recognize that this appears to place a heavy
responsibility upon you, but it is with the intention of
relieving you of such responsibility and of placing it upon
myself, in accordance with my strong convictions, that this
statement is made. 

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto subscribed my name and
affixed my seal at _______________, _______________, this _____
day of ____________, 19____, in the presence of the subscribing
witnesses whom I have requested to become attesting witnesses


     The declarant is known to me and I believe him/her to be of
sound mind.
