"There is a moral task of caregiving, and that involves just being there, being with that person and being committed.  When there is nothing that can be done, we have to be able to say, Look I'm with you in this experience.  Right through to the end of it."

Dr Arthur Kleinman

Love to all of us who were committed right through to the end.

Thank you, Bela. When I don't recognize a name, like Arthur Kleinman, I Google to find out something about that person. So from one of the sources, PBS, I watched his video on caregiving. He spoke of feelings that were exactly what my experience was. (My husband passed away the day before last Thanksgiving, but I still come to the forum to read.)

 Thank you again,
