This is the first thing Bea says this morning.
In the afternoon I tell her Paul and Nathalie have named their baby Juliette. Bea starts quoting from Shakespeare’s play. She seems very pleased.
Sven and I moved back to the USA from Europe in 1997 to care for my elderly parents. I’m grateful for the opportunity to help two people I love end their lives with dignity in familiar surroundings. My dad passed in 1999 at 97. This blog is about caring for my mother, Beatrice, known to everyone except my dad as simply "Bea."
