Her husband, my stepfather, died of Covid in January of 2021. She doesn’t even know he’s gone and has never asked about him.

This lady used To knock Out the Most challenging Crossword puzzles In record Time every day. She Wrote poetry And devoured Novels. It's Tough and Sad to Watch her Deteriorate so rapidly.

Hug your parents, your kids and your animals often.
