Over the last two years I have taken care of a wonderful man named Stanley. Sadly, Stanley became severely ill and his condition progressively deteriorated despite my best efforts to help in every way I could devise. Stanley jokingly said to me that he could write a book with all he has gone through. We both agreed that using some of his experiences would be helpful to other health carers. Through all his physical, emotional and spiritual pain, what shines through clearer and larger and more beautiful are his spirit, his soul and his heart.
