Oh Boy. Of Big Decisions, Political Correctness (Not), And The Impossibility Of Getting It "Right"

Breast Cancer

I popped in to see what I might be able to share from today's perspective, and I discovered a stack of loving, wise, yummy comments. I can't begin to tell you how much it means to me to see and receive your support.

How To Know When To Choose Hospice Care


Question For Bernie

Good morning Bernie,

It has been many months since I have written.  I am the teacher who has come to you for friendship and advice in the past.  My mother passed in Germany last March peacefully from her Alzheimer’s disease.
