I counselled an old man to care for his dying wife to the end -- at home -- if he possibly could -- but I said that it might prove to be impossible. Shortly after she died, he pulled his car over next to me in the street and shouted: "You were right! I'll never regret what I did!" OBSERVATION: But it is a grace, if one can do what he did. I myself cared for my late wife until the day before she died.
