Post Touching reminder of what elderly parents wish
Though I saw this posted yesterday on a PSP-related online discussion
group, this may be of interest to everyone here.


Subject: A very touching reminder when we experience angry feelings

I came upon this link today, perhaps some of you have already seen it.
I believe we all have moments of impatience or anger when we are in
presence of our loved ones who are ill.... It is a small but very
poignant reminder of what our elderly parents wish. ...

Robin, Thank you, but it was tough to read between the tears. Gerry

It was lovely, and reminded me again how very sad it is that Jerome's five adult children prefer not to know what is happening to him (why else do they never call or ask?). Sigh.

Renata,
Funny, Jerome's "adult" children came to my mind when I was watching this. Maybe you can suggest one of Jerome's other family or friends email it to them?!

Robin,

Thank you. That was truly wonderful! I too read it between the tears. Like Renata, my husbands 3 adult children came to mind. I am going to send them the link.
