My mom. Outlived my dad by 21 years (and counting). Currently kicking the ass of lung cancer. She’s outlived her own desire to live and yet she keeps going….

In my wife’s family it was her grandmother. Crone was exactly the right word for her too. She was that woman the devil bowed before every morning. And Liz loved her fiercely.

Thanks for this. It stirred up memories.
