Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit
Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad
I run a pub
we lose locals all the time. feel your pain
I used to work
in supported living. People with MS and other horrible wasting illnesses, makes you question your own mortality. At least it sounds like she didnt suffer.
nice one Ian...
........bless her, she had Parkinsons, but that isn't what did for her it seems...........but as you say, i guess she didn't suffer, I hope. Should be used to it by now, but some of the residents you can't help getting to like.
sorry to hear that m8
its always difficult when u get attched to people u care for it was the same with me before i started college i used to work with children with disabilities and u cant help getting attached to them and we have lost a few children in the 7 years i worked there it is sad but on the up side u have given them joy and comfort and helping them:-) so iam sure she passed a happy lady i do feel for u though
....good way of looking at things.
I agree with all that's been said above Steve,
if you like them, there's pretty good chance they are fond of you sometimes just a few minutes chat or laughter can brighten somebody's whole day, sounds like you do good dude
we had a Care and Quality Commision audit recently, and residents told them they enjoy living there and many residents felt the staff treated them like their own parents/grandaprents, which was nice.
nice to see some bikers still have it,well said all....most of us do care,as showed at runs like wooton bassett/easter eggs/hospitals.....
Sounds a nice way to go...
Hell of a lot better than my poor grandfather - he was around during the second world war, and died in a concentration camp.
Forgot to mention...
Forgot to mention how he died.
He fell out of the guard's tower.
