Sorry I didn't get a chance to tape it, but I heard on the radio that Troy Watkins over at WSAR did a really nice piece on your mom passng. Very moving.
Heartfelt condolances to you and yours, from my wife Becky and I.
That makes this entire day utterly worth it, man. My Mom was a teacher, an art teacher, and she affected so many people. But I never suspected she'd continue to have an affect on people. I was over at my granddad's place today, looking at some of my mom's pictures...there is a set of pictures of her as a little kid, mugging for the camera. Another when she had graduated from High School. Little moments frozen out of time, you know? Images not meant to be forgotten. I smiled, but still couldn't forget the image of her laying in that hospital bed, utterly shattered. Or in the casket at the family viewing. All images of my mother.
This completely takes my breath away, folks, and I thank you for it.

Are you living in the real world?
