It's Only Human Nature

I work with the elderly
Yes, I do and Love it !!...
This morning I received a call...
Asking me to come up to the home
one of the residents was passing and
asking to see myself and a co - worker of mine
Anne one last time ..
I do know death is a part of life and don't fear death...
And we are not supposed to close to the residents
but we are only human...
When Anne and I arrived at the home,
The resident son thanked Anne and I for coming.
She looked over at me, I went over to the side of her bed
took her hand in mine then she said to me " Do not worry about me I have lived my life with no regrets, It is over now
You have such a gentle soul, I'm glad to have known you, you have brought so much joy into my life.
Please don't be sad my friend, I will be watching over you like a good guardian angel should.

To make a joke now would be nice.
here's mine -
Only two things in this life are for sure Death and Taxes !!!
