She accepted and promised that she would stay with her. Gottlieb described it as an “incredible experience.” After a couple of years, Julie started to become too weak to come into the office, so Gottlieb began visiting her at home. Gottlieb already knew that Julies’s time of living was running out.
One day when Gottlieb was at her office doing her everyday job, she got an email from Julie’s husband and she already had an idea of what was possibly written in the email. She did not open the email immediately, she waited until the evening when she is at home. Gottlieb headed to her bathroom and began crying.
