You might not want to grow old but it happens or you hope it happens to you because the alternative is worse. People don’t like talking about it but it’s the natural progression of life. But it totally sucks. I hope to bring some helpful information to you and some real life situations my family had to face with my grandmother as she made her way through her end of life experience.

Trees – Poem by Joyce Kilmer
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
