Crossing that bridge with lessons I’ve learned Playing with fire and not getting burned I may not know what you’re going through But time is the space between me and you Life carries on
It goes on
Just say die and that would be pessimistic In your mind we can walk across the water Please don’t cry it’s just a prayer for the dying I just don’t know what’s got into me

This week the cousins discuss LadyG’s post, The Black Book, which details important lessons that she learned about death, dying, grief, and loss while working in hospitals. During the conversation she also brings a more recent perspective on loss after working as a Patient Advocate for breast and gynecologic cancer patients.
In addition, Ron offers some valuable insight from his 30+ years working in the medical field.
We started today’s discussion on current politics and the loss of civil rights giants, C.T. Vivian and John Lewis, including a commentary on “Black History.”
It should be noted that the deaths of these heroes encouraged Ron to select today’s post.
I’d like to dedicate this post to all of the patients that I loved and cared for before they made their transitions. I love you all and I will see you again. For the ones who remain, I pray for your continued wellness.🌹
Also a very special dedication to our late Grandparents, “Mother” and “Daddy;” and to LadyG’s mother, Eva, and to Ron’s father, Fletcher.
Rest in Peace to everyone who passed away due Covid-19.
May God watch over the families and friends who mourn the loss of anyone who has made the transition; at any point in time.
