Just one day after Carrie Fisher dies, her mother Debbie Reynolds followed her. The loss was too much to bear. I have seen this several times.
This needs to be a reminder to enjoy each day to the fullest and always let our family and friends know how much we care for them.
I just finished another Embassy case for a couple that had moved to Panama only about two months ago. They were loving it here. They loved the country. They loved the people.
Then one had a stoke and fell and was taken to Regional Hospital. This is where everyone is taken following similar accidents, unless someone intervenes.
The holidays are not a good time to be in need of medical attention in Panama. Doctors are not available often and sometimes it will take a couple of days for a specialist to come.
We were able to take care of the hospital, the Doctor’s cause of death report (Desfuncion), the Panama death certificate and get the body sent for cremation in record time. The Embassy is preparing the US death certificates.
These sort of cases, at Christmas time, really affect me. However, it was amazing to see the support of those that were there to ease the pain.
As you go forward today, think of those you love. Call them and tell them. Life is fragile. Enjoy each day.
