My sister told me the sweetest story tonight. I had called to chat and give her encouragement. She had just returned to her home at the assisted living facility after being with my brother-in-law all day. She mentioned that the employees at the facility have been sweet and caring to them, and today a couple of them were really emotional about my BIL going into hospice. She said they really do seem to care, and a couple of them have said they just love him with his kind attitude and his sense of humor, even in the face of his many limitations.
I said, "Well, he's very easy to love."
She replied, "You're not telling me anything. [They've been married just short of 55 years] He's the first and only man who walked into my office, asked for my phone number and got it!"
I'm so glad she has the precious memories.
