Dear »Dinah»,

Sometimes I remember how reluctant I felt and how the timing never seemed just right... I don't consider his passing a beautiful outcome...

I consider it an allegory and testament to the reputation of Kaiser/Permanente killing elderly patients... Immediately after refusing to replace his hearing aids they had lost, he became suddenly diagnosed as having advanced Alzheimer's...

Can you picture any Alzheimer patients able to call up 30 or 40 tunes on the harmonica without coaching or coaxing??? Unable to hear questions, he was a little slow answering; but answer he did...

Out of the other side of mouth, I am glad they recommended him for Hospice Care, because that allowed me to move him into my apartment, and supplied bed and care that made it so much easier for me to provide the food and meds to help make him comfortable... He remained noble to the end... I only hope I can be as noble as he was @ 91...

Rod
