The Parent Lottery
My mother, Agnes M. Peace, died Wednesday night. Her much loved children John, Kathy and Mary carried the burden of caring for her at the end of her life. I freely tell people that my siblings and I hit the parent lottery. Had it not been for my mother and father I would not have survived my childhood. They were pillars of strength when I was going through the medical mill as a child. They supported me in a way that forever changed my life. The world has lost two great people. I am just heartbroken. Mourning the death of a parent is terrible.
