(p.188) Epilogue
Dancing with Broken Bones

David Wendell Moller

Oxford University Press

This epilogue talks through events since the time of the stories told in Chapter 1 with Linda's team and Marvin “Cowboy” Smith. It details the unwavering support of the palliative care team towards Linda as she struggled to keep up her relationship with Cowboy. It then describes how Cowboy experienced an unfamiliar but well-deserved sense of peace; as his anger about his misfortunes in his early childhood continued to dissipate; and his improved relationships with his sons on his deathbed in the nursing home.

Keywords:   palliative care team, Marvin “Cowboy” Smith, Linda
