Early Friday morning, in the quiet of his home office, Brian Curin will power up his laptop, click open a special folder and launch a file called "My Life." Then he will watch the images and hear the words that his wife and three daughters thankfully have never seen or heard.
In the roughly eight-minute video, Brian -- wearing a hospital gown and sitting in a hospital bed -- says his goodbyes to each of them. He shares his thoughts and hopes for their futures without him. Emotions start to overwhelm him several times, but he somehow remains composed.
