Today is the last day of National Family Caregivers Month, something I wrote about two weeks ago. Caregiving and its importance is something that's been close to my heart for almost thirty years.

This is a picture of my wonderful Aunt Rene. She is the last of my "parents": at least, she is the last of that generation of folks in my husband's family who ever functioned as a surrogate grandparent to my kids, since three out of four of our parents passed away before my kids were even born.
