I took care of Nancy for almost three years. But Nancy was more than my patient. She was my friend, my confidant, and my chosen sister.
I’m so sad, Nancy, that we will never do the things we had planned. I have a jar partially filled with dimes for when we went to Greece for our 55th birthdays. I suppose somewhere deep down I knew we would never make that trip together, but it was so much fun talking about it like we would.
Nancy, you were the kind best friend to me, and I will never forget you, or all of the funny things you’d say, the things you taught me, the secrets that we shared. You had such a love and devotion to your family. I can only hope to be half the wife and mother you were.
My heart is still so broken, Nancy, but I am comforted by knowing you are in heaven with Ramon again, and how joyous that must be for you, and in that knowledge, I am truly happy for you.
I play your Apple Music in the car wherever I go nowadays. I’m still not ready to let you go, but I know I have to. You are no longer sad, or in pain, and for that I am so very glad.
I love you, Nancy. Always and forever my dear true friend.
Also, you’ll probably kill me for sharing this photo, but I just love the joy on your face, because you really loved that bathing suit I got you for your birthday!
This is how I’ll remember you, always smiling, always doing or saying something cute, always happy.
