Ruth Remembered, Part I

She got her wish: to die at home. After so many hospitalizations Ruth was in her own bed, with 24/7 care and hospice.

I saw her twice during this period, the last visit a week before her death. She still insisted on holding her water glass, and made clear decisions about her care and who could visit. She asked about my family. She talked about joining her family. Then she complained. That was Ruth.

Aging with dignity and strength. Our bridge to the past.

One of the last adult survivors, finally at peace.
