All rivers run to the sea

Althea and I visited hospice care this morning to find an empty room. Our family has lost an engaging, sensitive, and brilliant woman. I was privileged to have taken her this past year to her house her son had built in the woods of Sampson County NC, an area she loved dearly.




“May all who suffer be comforted. All rivers run to the sea.” (sent to me by her son the day before)
