On the Schermer side there are 16 cousins in Julie’s generation. In June we had our first reunion. Julie helped with the planning and had her heart set on attending, but her organs let her down She was stuck in the hospital. Julie belonged there more than any of us because she was always the first to open her home to any of the cousins. We all have very fond memories of good times and good food at Scott and Julie’s. She was the caregiver of our generation. She cared for her mom, for Dena, for Aunt Sura and of course for dear Scott. Even as her health failed, Scott was her main concern. She wanted to make sure he was taken care of. She had more than her share of suffering. Julie suffered through the terrible loss of Dena, her only child. She suffered through months of hospitalizations and needles and surgeries and tubes and ventilators and dialysis and ICUs and transfers and who knows the agony, pain and boredom. Still she wanted to care for us and especially Scott. In the end Julie pondered the quality of her life and the fact that her organs were failing her. She accepted her mortality. She took control of her life and gained both dignity and precious quality time. She showed us the way. Now it is time for her to take a rest.
