The parents of my friend Angie are considered by their children as soul mates. They've been married for more than 50 years. Throughout the years of their marriage, their children witnessed how they loved, respected and admired each other. Yes they argue but they never fight and they are always in love.
Last year, Angie's mom died and her father was left with Alzheimer's Disease. Every time she would check on her dad, he would always tell her that her mom came ahead of her to remind him to eat on time, not to forget his medicines, that she always cares for him, and so on. He would also talk a lot about how busy his wife is in socializing with "relatives" and how younger and happy she looks by now.
Angie thought everything is just her father's imagination. Therefore, she chose to ignore his stories. Until one night, she woke up and saw her mother standing at the foot of her bed...and yes, she looks lovelier than when she was still alive.
To her she said, "I am not here because I cannot move on. In fact, there is no reason why I won't because I am confident that you and your siblings will not forsake your dad. But I know that he will surely miss how I personally take care of him. And that is also what I miss..."
