Farewell to a Good Man

One of the orderlies died.  He had cancer that spread.  I don't know where it started, but in the end, he could not eat and did not want a feeding tube.  He worked as long as he could to provide for the children he would be leaving behind.

I remember one moment  when he made me feel better.  I was upset that a guy had canceled a date with me, citing tiredness.  The orderly said, "I don't care if I had just taken a sleeping pill and was a step above unconscious.  If you wanted to see me, I'd be there."

My he rest in peace.
