Site Hits Will be Dropping

The Pool has lost one of its readers.

My mom went into the hospital last Sunday. I had planned to drive down (six hours to WIlmington, NC) and see her Friday afternoon. My brother called Friday morning to report that she died overnight.

I made the trip anyway to spend some time with my brother and his family. Two months after losing my wife, I have lost my mother. I am relieved she didn't linger for months in a nursing home, but it kills me that I didn't get there in time to see her and tell her again that I loved her.
