    Prayers for you and your family.

    i just returned from a week in Columbus, Ohio where my Mom has started palliative care. She had cared for my Dad until he took his life in December, inadvertently in front of her. She had a bad fall down concrete steps in March after a TIA and suffered a severe head injury. She came down with Sepsis in August and had her colon removed but she is still chopping wood.

    I stayed in my childhood house this past week with all of the wonderful childhood memories and the unfortunate memories of the past year. Needless to say, after watching the game Saturday from there I will never do that again.

    I hope everyone never takes for granted the time they have with their parents.

    Hate to hear that brother. She’s got the best seat in the house to watch the Dawgs. Buried both my folks some time ago, celebrate their lives and know our end is only the beginning.

    Prayers DC. My time will come too, to have to face this. Blessed to still have both of mine for their 88 years plus, but it's something we all will face and never will be easy, and always more important than trivial things.

    It's sad to see posts like this. I'm coming up on 6 years since my Dad passed from Prostate Cancer. You're right, it puts things in perspective for sure. I find myself getting worked up about College Football or some other minor thing a little too often. Thoughts and Prayers for you and your family Sir.

    I hope each day gets a little better for you. It takes more than a minute to feel right again.
