Even as our final days on earth render us less able to conquer all that we challenged ourselves to overcome, we find beauty and peace in those who are with us, the last good things to happen to us. In this episode we hear two stories of caregiving, stories told by Shannon Repine and Sara Gowans at our Oct. 1, 2015 Story Night event when the themes came from those found in The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving, by Jonathan Evison.
The stories are followed by a song offered by a remarkably talented woman whose talent was only discovered on a grand scale after she left us. Eva Cassidy performs "What a Wonderful World," a fitting accompaniment to our stories and a perfect message as we approach Thanksgiving and the rest of the holidays.
To learn more about Cassidy watch the story Nightline gave us a few years after she died.
