I lost my Dad in March. Sadly we couldn’t visit him due to Covid-19.
He lost his eyesight, couldn’t use his cell phone, had no phone in his room, and it was a week before I got a call through to him. It was then that I found out they never told him that visitors were not allowed anymore.
My Dad spent one of his final weeks in agony wondering why he had no visitors, and then a couple more weeks after that alone.
Pictured is probably my second to last visit, when I was trying to cheer him up with a Monty Python song, “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,” and he sang along with some of his own final breaths. His last song.
