At the time of our Session, Derek’s speech was limited. Due to his condition his answers were limited to ‘yes’ along with some simple sounds. We held the Session in Derek’s room, with Karen sharing stories of the life she and Derek had shared together for many years.
It was at this point in the project that I realised just how much love matters in our lifetimes. I learnt a great deal from Karen on just what it meant to love and care for someone.
She shared stories that were filled with gratitude for the beauty she experienced in everyday life with Derek.
She spoke about their home and their garden and the unwavering connection they retained despite changes in her husband’s physical wellness.
