My father in law, who was dying of brain cancer, came home from a hospital stay. It was his and my mother in law’s anniversary so I suggested they invite a few friends over for dinner…
Jimmy managed to get out of bed to join us. The strain of feeding himself and the presence of guests were obviously tiring him. Knowing that he could not hear very well, my mother in law passed a note to me to give to him. I read it and got hysterical with laughter. She remembered what she wrote and laughed too.
The note read, “Happy Anniversary Dear. Do you want to go to bed?”
Jimmy read his wife’s note, looked across the table, and with a twinkle in his eye and a smile on his face said, “I would love to dear, but we have company!”
