This morning, memories of Jimmy in his "better days" flood my mind. Those were days when he wasn't fighting cancer, when he could carry on an intelligent conversation, when he talked of golf or "grocery shopping".
These days, his family grapples with the fact that he will soon have to be in a facility where his care can be managed 24/7. This decision, although necessary, hasn't been an easy one for Pat and Tianni.
These are the days when he shouldn't be left alone and when hospice nurses have become a part of the weekly routine. Days when we're glad that we have memories stored, in the pages, in the 'Memory Book of our Minds'.
