This orphan’s Last Blog Post

As the headline suggests, this will be the final post to this blog.

Mom died July 15 and we had her memorial service this past weekend.

This journey has been exhausting and now it is time to be the caretaker to myself.

I’ve learned a great deal about myself, my tolerance and my patience.

I am a better man for taking care of my parents.

It is indeed tough raising them, but it’s the last we can do.

While the service is Sunday, tonight we visited two of her favorite places at Ft. Myers Beach.

My best advice is something I’ve said from the start:

Talk to them. Know what they want.

I’m glad I did.

Thanks for the support, comments and advice along the way.

The best care we can take is taking care of ourselves.



Rest In Peace Fran
