My son-in-law told me something tonight that really hit home:
Why does God put us through these hard times? When we think things are the worst it can get.
God is preparing us to let go when our loved ones die. So we will not give up on life itself, and be grateful that our loved ones are gone with no more pain.
We will as caregivers feel our work is done, we did the best that we could. We feel released from our job as a carer. It helps us deal with death.
