Don't Let Go
My father and his caregiver Anita grew close at the end. I hate to admit it, but he was a difficult patient. Only Anita could get him to eat and exercise, keeping up his strength. She'd lost her husband just a few months earlier. She held onto my father, and this macho man let himself hold onto her.
