he always tells me that you shouldn't expect anything...
especially when dealing with people.
my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at twenty six.
they had been married for six years.
the baby was one and her brother was four.
he asked his mother to come up to maryland to help out...
she had a household filled with six children and was unable to leave.
he asked his mother in law to come to maryland to help out...
she had a household filled with eight children and was unable to leave.
he says that this was the quietest and loneliest time in his life.
the few people that he expected to show up couldn't afford to leave their lives.
life is good.
