Cover Page possibilities

I am trying to make a final decision on the cover of my book. Any thoughts? It is a diary and then provides research-based information on health care (and death & dying) in Ontario, specifically resources for family members who become Alternate Decision-makers.

From my strong, tall father, who could repair, fix or build anything, he lost the ability to figure out the function of things. He bitterly fought using a walker, eventually was in a wheel chair. He tried to get out of it all the time. We had to restrain him as he would be a danger to himself.

The tumour affected his balance.

He was unable to drink easily at the end. I would have to hold the cup for him, if he could not manage two-handed.

I loved dad's hands. They reflected his age and experiences, which make us all more beautiful human beings.
