My wife and I drove to western NC to see our grandchild after the Tennessee game, the. n swung by to see my 94 yr old mother in Hilton Head on our way back to Panama City. We had a great visit, but 3 days later she called me because of chest pain. I told her to go immediately to the ER, and she was admitted. Seemed to be going well with discharge planned when she took a bad turn, and passed early Monday morning. We were blessed to have the visit, the first in months, and she confided that she was happy that she had recently developed heart issues, as she was afflicted with intermittent severe sciatica, and was horrified at the prospect of "being a burden." She was climbing stairs and drinking sparkling wine with us last Monday evening.

I'm not looking for sympathy - she lived a full and interesting life, left many descendants, was a polymath who showed no loss mentally into her final day. We had the opportunity to tell her we loved her in person and by phone. We will be reunited one day.


(thankful to be her son, and to be a Georgia Dawg!)
