The time from early May to late December of last year has been the most trying mentally, emotionally, and psychologically in my life.
After a short period of quickly declining health, my father died on Sept. 16 of last year -- the day before my birthday.
Then, after another period of quickly declining health, my mother died on Dec. 26 -- the day after Christmas.
That's why I had not written many posts during that time, and why I made vague references in earlier posts to the poor health of some relatives.
I've been trying to organize my notes to write about my parents and that time. When that happens, I'll post it.
