Went to visit a woman I haven't seen in about a year. She's in a nursing home quite a long ways and I've been unable to travel. About an hour train ride. It seems I have been her only visitor in a year. She has no living relatives. The hallway of the nursing home was filled with women sitting in wheelchairs staring into space. I got to her room and we watched television a while and I held her hand. As I was about to leave she told me she knew she was dying and asked me to arrange for her cremation and disperse her ashes.
