A great worker for a long time in the right-to-die movement, JIM CHASTAIN, brought his life to an end on his 92nd birthday. He wrote this note, which son emailed next day. Jim wrote:
To paraphrase Bilbo Baggins – [Tolkien character]

Today is my 92nd birthday. Alas, 92 is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable people.

I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve. But I regret to announce — this is my ‘Final Exit’.
I am going now. I bid you all a very fond farewell. Goodbye.

I have had a full, happy life filled with interesting activities and friendly accomplished people. Thank you for the part you have played in making my life so good.
HAVE FUN. [end quote]
Jim died peacefully at home in Florida with his family nearby on his 92nd birthday, March 5, 2018.
He had worked for the Hemlock Society USA, the Hemlock Society of Florida and lastly the Final Exit Network.
