Title Saying Good-Bye at the Nursing Home
Description as we wheeled you into the nursing home. Still (here was no comprehension in your eyes and you seemed calm and resigned in the wheelchair, yet there was an air of dignity about you. The big-screen television caught your interest After papers were signed and a quick tour of facility given, the time for good-bye came "Mom, are you alright?" "Yes." "You are going to stay here. Is that okay?" "Yes, if you say so * "You need some special care give you that care " Your dark, brown eyes caught the forehead, LaVon S. Olsen and daughter. Camille. "And I love you." Your whisper came back, as your gnarled hand was placed on my cheek. I had fell your hand so many times before: when I was sick with rheumatic fever, as I said good-bye to go on 3 mission fo France, and when I left for Idaho and a new life with my husband. I looked in youi eyes again, those deep-set, brown, understanding eyes, and 1 understood all (he wisdom and learning of your years. For a small moment you recognized the exchange. I turned to leave you; eyes filled with tears; the warm sensation of your hand still radiated on my cheek. It was only two hours and then it was done. 76
