I hope you're taking notes 2

I hope you're taking notes 2

A friend forwarded an article link
From NY Times

Being pro choice, pro civil liberty,
I appreciate some people do OK in facility based living.

Likewise, consent does not always equal embracing, enjoying, or thriving.
My Mom said to not feel bad about sending her to facility care,
Until she went there,
Then she forgot she said that.

Our Uncle would be 100 years old today.

It was a view I sorely missed
When I left the house I grew up in.
Uncle Jay,
In the kitchen,
His gentle tone,
Calm demeanor,
Those who also remember him
Know his posture,
Always greeting each child,
Walking in the front door in the evening,
A cup of coffee, some conversation,
Laughter and

Happy Birthday Jay.
You are an awesome man
Mom's big brother.

She missed you so,
As we miss you and her
Those days.

It was a battle
In the civil war.
For our family,
A loss,
A scar on the family tree.

How did he die?
Our great great grandfather,
Bohemian immigrant,
Sent to battle by the Illinois regiment.
Leaving a wife and 4 hungry children.

They fought for the 5 dollar pension,
After he died.
I imagined one scenario.
I pray he didn't suffer,
While knowing he must have.
