I went to visit my old friend from when I worked at the nursing home to say goodbye as i prepare to move to Sarasota. When I got there, she told me she was leaving too and I asked where. I was not happy with the response.
Nellie is suffering from a rare cancer that has grown on her left leg. Its on the shin and theres no flesh to work with. So instead of becoming crippled shes opted to live the rest of her time with it. I know this is the happiest shes ever been and in a weird way im tremendously happy for her.
Out of her 82 years on this planet she has not a single regret and she owes nothing to anyone. She has a free mind and heart. Everything about her is still 100% healthy, given being a smoker for 68 years.
She said shes ready to leave because “its just so God awful boring here”
Im happy shes ready, but I’m sad that I’ll lose such a close person. Shes given me some of the best advice and she told me if I don’t make myself happy that she’ll haunt me forever.
I love you Nell. I wish you an easy transition into the next life. Thank you for helping me become who I am today
