  1. A hospice patient does not want a reconciliation with an adult child. They have not spoken in years. The adult child has no way of knowing where the patient is located, nor does the adult child know that the parent is dying....although rumors are reaching that adult child that the parent is sick. Because of those rumors the adult child is seeking verification of the parents whereabouts and asking questions about the parent's health for the first time in years. The friends surrounding said patient's bedside - think it is critical to reunite these two and "make peace". The patient remains adamant that they have no interest in reconnecting to the child and the patient wants to die in peace without the well-intended friends insisting on this "bridge to peace." You are the patient's minister. The adult child has become aware of that fact. Your primary role is to render comfort to the dying patient. Is there merit for the patient - to nudge a bit for the personal peace accord. Is it better to allow the dying person to go out "as they choose".... Does the adult child have any claim on contact? Does the adult child have any say in this matter? Does the adult child have any moral rights? If a dying person's wish is to be left alone - is that sacrosanct? Any ideas to share on this situation? Thanks, Von
