"Grandmama is old and I think it is time she went home to Jesus," Gaddy told Magouirk's brother and nephew, McLeod and Ken Mullinax. "She has glaucoma and now this heart problem, and who would want to live with disabilities like these?"
Mae has a living will that specifically says nutrition and hydration are *not* to be withheld unless she is in a coma or a vegetative state.
Probate Court Judge Donald W. Boyd, despite Mae's living will and the fact that she has closer relatives who should by law be given guardianship, gave the granddaughter temporary emergency guardianship, allowing her to continue withholding treatment against Mae's clearly expressed wishes in her living will. click here and click here
