Near Carrollton, Kentucky

"I wanted to be a paramedic, but then I got working at a nursing home and two weeks in I knew it was for me.  I had a favorite patient.  It was a couple.  I used to clean their home before they went to the nursing home.  They were special.  They had their 76th wedding anniversary with us and we had a big party.  They loved it.  They died a year ago, one month apart from each other.

They had their 76th wedding anniversary with us and we had a big party. They loved it. They died a year ago, one month apart from each other.  Their lives were so entangled.  Once one went, the other had to go, too.  Now the most important things in my life are my grandchildren. They are my little lights.”  Waiting for the school bus.
