Sharon And Ozzy Make A Pact

Following the tragic loss of her father earlier this year, Sharon Osbourne made her own end of life plans. The Daily Mirror interviewed the America’s Got Talent judge about the decision she and husband Ozzy reached to choose their own ends should a mentally degenerative disease afflict either of them. “I saw my father suffer from the day he came back into my life in 2002 to the day he died in July. There's no way I could go through what he did, or put my kids through that,” Sharon told the Mirror. Considering it the “final gift of love to (their) kids,” the couple have already contacted their lawyers to see to it that their wishes are respected. “Ozzy and I have absolutely come to the same decision. We believe 100 percent in euthanasia so have drawn up plans to go to the assisted suicide flat in Switzerland if we ever have an illness that affects our brains. If Ozzy or I ever got Alzheimer's, that's it — we'd be off,” she revealed to the paper. “We gathered the kids around the kitchen table, told them our wishes and they've all agreed to go with it.”
