    I am so glad his last memory is of those farmhouse steps and not a strange bed, no matter how "soft"!

    I'm glad y'all liked this article. Like most of the unforgettable-patient tales I've posted here over the years, this one pretty much wrote itself. It doesn't take a lot of talent.......all I have to do is get out of the way and let the subject tell his/her story.

    My mom died a couple of years ago. After an intense 4 days w/my sisters and her caregivers @ her bedside, she passed around noon. I was so exhausted, I didn't feel safe to drive the 10 miles back to my own house. ~ 2am, I was sitting sort of stuporously on the couch I had been sleeping on and I got the strongest picture in my mind: my Dad's face w/the biggest grin I'd ever seen, and I thought, "She made it!"
    what a gift!
