"She got up and looked at the door and said, 'That's Roz!' Well, I said OK, but she can't take you yet." -Ann White.
Classie felt the need to look out the back door ever since her vision of Roz there. Hospice chaplain Rev. Robbie Wellington explained it is not uncommon for them to see people that are already gone. They are not delusional or reeling from medications and it is a common sign of approaching end of life. "And for all we know, they could be calling her to the other side, to that place of rest and peace," he said. "I would give you anything if you could just make me well," said Classie to Ann. Medical insurance would only offer the option of a day nurse so Ann's abiliity to take night duty, was the essential link in keeping Classie in her home as she wished. She grieved deeply after the loss of her sister and Ann would curl up in bed with her to provide comfort. "She had a purpose in life. She was taking care of her brother and her sister before ... she was sick and her little self taking care of them. You understand, she was a strong woman."
