One of the reasons I have loved working for hospice is that I get to see – what one colleague called – love in action.  When someone is dying, there are demonstrations of love everywhere.  From the family members taking direct care of that person to the neighbor who provides a meal.  From the cousin who collects photographs from the family to friends who send cards of encouragement.  But the greatest demonstrations of love are those one on one moments…whether it be husband and wife, mothers and daughters, sisters and brothers.  Being witness to those moments is both heart-breaking and heart-warming.  This video makes public a very private moment and message from this husband to his wife of 66 years.

Did you have a moment with a loved one before they died?  Please share below…
