Excellent story but so sad. My stepdaughter worked with AIDS patients back in the day when she’d watch them all slowly wither away. Tough times, they were. Those who tried to help suffered with each loss. Always taking the next patient before the last was cold. Trying to help when there was little to be done, at least for the long run. Not many long runs back then.
