"There is a shadow of death on her face. She's giving up, a little more each day." -Ann White, caregiver.
Death is not like in the movies. It isn't pretty and doesn't always come fast or easy, but more like a slow withering. According to the hospice chaplain people know they are going to pass before others do and they need closure with this world and permission to let go. He suspects that caring for her sister gave her life meaning and purpose. "Ms Morant just seems to be the kind of a person who would just keep going on forever. She would keep giving and giving to others and doing such beneficial and sacred work. And it just seems like God is coming along and saying ‘you know, you've done your work, you've made me proud and it's time for you to rest."
