Very moving and so touchingly written. A winner in my book.
Wow, you managed to capture so many emotional responses from so many characters in so few words. You have dealt with the death of a spouse, serious illness, guilt, lack of pity and compassion. Well done.
Simply lovely!

How very sad. Yet how true this scenario is ... a devoted life partner goes and what happens to the survivor? I loved some of your words e.g. "nestled in the crumpled fragility of a labyrinth of wrinkles". Thank God for the staff of places like your main character's new home.
Difficult, and yet touching and sweet at the same time. The inevitability of this scenerio hits close to home as my mother finished her life dealing with Alzheimer's. You did an excellent job here - very real and involving.
