    I hope your boyfriend is able to make the most of his time with his Dad.

    I had nine weeks with my Grandfather (liver cancer) that were in many ways more rewarding than the 30 years that proceeded them because we both were paying much closer attention and because we agreed to enjoy our time together.

    I can't tell you how much I appreciated the Hospice people.  They were invaluable to me as a caregiver.

      When people know that time isn't infinite it makes the time all more valuable. To be honest, my boyfriend and his dad did not get along most of his life. They have found a new relationship with one another, and I'm very grateful for that.
