There is always a point in time where Morrie shows fondness to his nurses. One nurse in particular Connie, who helps him with everything he needs as stated in this part of the book, “Connie would wheel him to the toilet, then lift from the chair and support him as he urinated into the beaker” (Albom, 49). Connie does so many things for Morrie. Everything from organizing his phone calls to helping him pee. Morrie couldn’t do half the things he can now without the help of Connie. As you can see Morrie’s connection with his nurses are far more than just nurse and patient, it is kind of like a family. There is something different about Morrie’s family. Everyone is just like Morrie, caring, happy, and always there for each other. Morrie says: I think, in the light of what we’ve been talking about all these weeks family becomes even more important. The fact is, there is no foundation, no secure ground, upon which people may stand today if it isn’t for family. It’s become quite clear that I’ve been sick. If you don’t have the support and love and caring and concern that you get from a family, you don’t have much at all. Love is so supremely important. As our great poet Auden said, ‘Love each other or perish.’
