Ways we helped him

There was only so much we could do. Even physically being there. Even sharing the pain as much as we could. Rubbing him if that helped. Just kind of overseeing and watching out for what his needs were. He'd want something special from home and we would get that. A lot of prayer--silent as well as spoken. Discussing things--that meant a lot to him because that can be very helpful, too, to remember some of the neat things of being on the farm and caring for it. Some of us are involved in nontraditional therapies dealing with, like, therapeutic touch and things, and so some of that as well.
