We cried together

I had the privilege of visiting a resident in hospice 1x per week for 6 weeks. I ended up getting a promotion and leaving the retirement residence. During the party for my last day this lovely ladies family managed to bring her to see me 1 last time. When I saw her my eyes swelled. I walked to the back of the room to her. I asked her if it would be ok-that when she passed, if her family could notify me. 4 weeks later sitting at my new desk, her daughter called me to tell me she had passed. We cried together on the phone. What a blessing it was to have known her and been there at the end.
