A friend on one of my teams mentioned that a man she had looked after for a long while had died at the age of 90, he & his wife had been married for 60 years and she was suffering from Alzheimer’s. At first you might think how sad..... but really, what a marvellous achievement.
It suddenly puts things into perspective doesn't it? What a wonderful life they must have had together, all the things they will have been through & what a wealth of knowledge & experience has been lost not only from his death but from his wife’s Alzheimer’s. I wish more young people would listen to the stories their Grandparents or the older generation can tell them. We lose so much when they go.
Life is a strange old thing & I'm just glad that I personally have a wonderful husband, family and friends and also I have good Sparkfriends who are beside me all the way. I'm so lucky.
