Saying Good-Bye and Moving Forward

Part 3: Memories of a Lifetime

You will always remember the person who died.  That person played an important part in your life so keep the memories alive in your heart and mind.  Take comfort in knowing that by giving care in the final stages of life, you shared in the most loving act of support and comfort.  (Extracted from:  A Caregiver's Guide: A Handbook About End-of-Life Care)
