A daughter reflects on the final days spent with her dying father.

First Person is an anthology series adapted from the column (formerly “Facts & Arguments”) in the Canadian newspaper, The Globe and Mail. The column has been published daily for the past twenty-five years and consists of personal essays written by every day Canadians who have something to express. The essays are often poignant, funny, enlightening, and always deeply personal. The shared experiences, unique perspectives, and original voices found in these essays is what makes the “First Person” column one of the most popular and widely read sections of the newspaper.
