Being called out to a visit
for a young 40-something cancer patient
Apparently, her friends had promised her that when she passed away the party would begin, and she had insisted on being dressed up in a fine gown with a sidelining zipper. Well, the gown was beautiful, but the zipper just would not budge, so we all got on the bed and pinned that zipper the best we could. It was like a wrestling match and all the girlfriends were laughing and crying bittersweet tears. By the time we were done with this sweet young patient she looked so lovely, fresh flowers draped her, and the family was so happy.
