The last eight months, I've been taking care of an elderly lady with dementia. It has been one of the most pleasant jobs I've had in my working career. Billie was part of a loving, lovely family and this evening she passed away. She had been in a short term nursing facility after a fall left her with a broken pelvis and she seemed to be ok. But tonight Billie died suddenly and peacefully. I'm going to miss her like the dickens.
Her daughter Judy called to let me know right after calling her brothers and sister-in-law which was a pretty nice honor and I was able to go to short term facility to say goodbye to her before her mortal body was taken away, and to hug and cry with the people who've loved her best for over 65 years. Billie and her husband Larry were married for 67 years this year and she was the love of his life.
Gods, I was so blessed to get to work for her and to get to know her family.
