130. Several years ago, as I was visiting my uncle in the hospital...
something interesting happened. He was dying of cancer, and was semi-comatose. As far as I could tell, he was not even aware that we were in the room. His lips had become so dry, that they were cracked. I went and got some water on a washrag, to dab them.

He immediately opened his eyes, looked at me, and smiled broadly. "You're an angel", he said. I replied no, it's just me. He then looked at my husband, "It is an angel, isn't it?" My husband told him yes.

Now, I have no idea what he was seeing. But I would like to think that if angels do exist, he did indeed see one that night. I only know that whatever he saw when he looked at me made him happy, and put him at peace. His last words to me were that he was amazed that anything could be so beautiful.
