‘Lonnie said, ‘This is all for you.’ Now any time he sees a truck, he tells me about his buddy, Lonnie.’: Neighborhood in tears after recycling worker’s act of kindness for little boy

“‘I promise when this pandemic is over, I’m going to let you ride in my truck.’ I told Lonnie we were 2 weeks away from moving, and we were so disappointed. As we were hurrying down the hallway, we heard the truck beep the horn, and I knew they could only be honking for Charles. All the neighbors had huge smiles on their faces and tears in their eyes.”

‘We’re gonna get you cleaned up now.’ It was time to turn off her machine. My husband leaned in to hug them, tears streaming down his face.’: Woman thanks nurses and doctors for their ‘selflessness’ during daughter’s final moments

“There were three nurses for my daughter 24 hours a day. When the time came for us to turn off the machine, the nurses braided her hair and put a blue bow in it.

“When a mother says she’s tired, that’s all she meant! She did not say she wants to forget her baby exists. When you arrive at a mother’s disorganized house, it doesn’t mean the house is always disorganized. When you listen to a mother screaming, it doesn’t mean she just screams. She has spoken 300 times that day in a normal tone. Every day she gives up her own life, to live the life of another being.”
