I lost my heart and my soulmate

published by Mothership on June 12, 2024

Assisi Hospice’s Day Care patient, 83-year-old Mrs Manelle Perera has heart failure and is a recent widow. She lost her husband, Patrick, in July last year to interstitial lung disease. They were married for 52 years and had a deeply loving relationship.

Till this day, Mrs Manelle continues to mourn the loss of her lifetime companion. However, she takes comfort in art therapy and music, including old recordings Patrick left behind of him singing, even as his health declined.
