The Waiting

For about 9 months last year, I saw my grandmother waste away from Alzheimer's Disease.
In 1997, for a few months we watched as my maternal grandfather went into a cancer induced tailspin.
Right now my daughter's maternal great grandmother is slipping away at age 81.
It's hard to know what to hope for. I don't like seeing people die, but don't like them to suffer.
