We lost one of our stewards from the local museum where I do project work, a few days ago.
I've spent quite a lot of time with him this last year or 6 months.
I'm left with a few questions
1) Although those who could do, did what we could, he was in a lot of pain; which he just didn't deserve.
2) At various nursing homes I visited him at I saw so much pain....why is it often necessary for the elderly to go through this.
(I did witness an elderly lady being lifted onto a bed......I do hope this doesn't sound disrespectful but I couldn't help thinking of her as a 25 year old bouncing around a ballroom 70 years ago).
I have felt lousy today, for no accountable reason, which I(we) think is a grief reaction.
