Been there, missed out on job opportunities trying to move closer so I could take better care of my mom. You have some good priorities. I appreciate everything you were trying to do, though as someone else said it has been a bit of a shot gun approach. You have often brought things to our attention no one else did. Take good care of your mom, and post when you can.I gladly answer that. My mother was one of the first women professors at George Mason back. She taught there and was the head of the Spanish department; she actually helped my high school Spanish teacher get his doctorate. It is point of pride for me. Anyway my mother is still alive and 98. But her memory is going fast, she is having a hard time recognizing any more..it's sucks to say the least. I love my mother. Even though I am married and love my wife, my mother is still the center of my being.
I grew up on that campus when it was still all trees. Being a mason for me now in my older years is more about a feeling a connection for who my mother was rather she is now
I am trying a find a way to a stay connected to her before she does not recognize me anymore.
