Hang the Expense
When you realize someone is in her final weeks of life, you stop penny pinching and counting calories. You buy the best food to try to get her to eat, you open the caviar and champagne that’s been sitting around. You bring expensive flowers. There is no reason to give tangible gifts, in fact the person is giving away her stuff right and left. You spend a lot of time just sitting, being with the person who you can’t believe will soon be gone.
