Who is Left in the End?

When you get very old, and all your contemporaries are shut-in or dead, with whom do you interact? Well, if you’re lucky, your family. Otherwise, your caregivers. At the final years of my gram’s life, these were the people who came through, who were there at the end, who cried the tears. Current caregivers, former caregivers, mothers and daughters of caregivers. The family was in and out, but the caregivers stayed.
