Yeah, I'm still thinking about dying. The young woman I mentioned is in 24-hour home hospice care. She is dozing or drifting most of the time, receiving sufficient pain medication to remain comfortable. Who knows what's going on for her?
For her family, though, the gifts of community are many. Here is a link to a blog post written yesterday by this woman's father. This is an incredible piece of writing reflecting clearly the truth that a broken heart is not always a bad thing. People have opened their hearts and homes, made time to help. The generosity and good vibes attending this passing are beyond belief. If you're a cynic, click the link.
I am in awe of the beauty and power surrounding this event. Wow.
The image, above, is one I captured Saturday while walking around. They are headed in the direction of Kirby's house. Reading the blog helped me realize these guys were going to the "awake wake."
