Sad news: JCW's mom died Wednesday morning after months bouncing back and forth between hospitals and convalescent homes.
JCW is a frequent commenter here who always makes me laugh with his outrageous sense of humor. He is also my friend from way back. How far back? Before cell phones...before the first home computer, even.
Shut up. That was not really very long ago, you know.
I owe Mrs. C an ode but I just do not have it in me this morning. I am great with odes to cats and people who humiliated me back in the sixth grade. When it comes to people with hurting families who live down the street, I worry I will say something stupid and make their pain even worse.
I love you John. Big hugs and kisses. Looking forward to the Life Celebration after the services, where we will toast your ma and I can find out what she was really like.
