A Peaceful Passing

Today, per usual, I was helping Josh at the AFH (Adult Family Home) and one of our clients passed away. It's been awhile since I've been in a home while that happened and I got more emotional than usual. Not sad, just emotional. I was actually struck by the beauty of it.

She had lived a good life and passed on with her daughters by her side. There was no struggle and she thankfully had as peaceful a passing as you can have. I hope that when my time comes, I go like Betty.

Her family has been at her bedside for the last two weeks. Patiently comforting her. Telling us what a wonderful mother she was. It was an honor to care for her and her family during these last days.
