Oh mama it was a pleasure an a honour to look after you at our care facility. You brought such light to every single one of my shifts. I will miss hiding in your room and having dance parties and all the giggling and inappropriate laughs we had. I became so attached to you that my first shift without was heartbreaking and found myself in the bathroom shedding tears numerous times. You have made me a better carer and also made me want to further myself. I will be thinking of you when I start my degree. We are taught not to get emotionally involved but you understood that my rezzies become my family and my children loved visiting you also. Thankyou for loving and trusting me and bringing such love and light to my shifts.
