Core of values
The day before mom died dad was saying that mom was on antibiotics, that she was suffering, and either he or she wanted some peace for her. He said the care was on top of the situation (in the hospital). Later, my sister said she was failing due to treatment she had in rehab. She felt the care was subpar.
Unknowing to us all mom would pass the next day. We briefly talked about my writings and art and direction. Dad said "mom's love set up a base for me. The core of good values will prevail."
