Meanwhile at the VA Dementia Ward

How It Ends

I got the OK to take my guy outside in a wheelchair. He liked the sun, fresh air, birds singing.

He loves country and bluegrass so I played El Paso by Marty Robbins and he sang along.

Then he said he can see this is the end for him, how his life ends up. We talked about that for a while.

I played Foggy Mountain Breakdown by Earl Scruggs and he smiled and made banjo movements with fingers of both hands.

Then he said I better get him back inside.
