He told a joke at Thanksgiving dinner, but no one understood his words. He died so in bits — easy time payments to Parkison’s hard contract.
This is heartbreaking.
Powerful emotion, Madeline! Well done!
Parkinsons robbed him of so much.
With his death he was free
A tragedy most have shared, and profoundly sad. What an admonition to seize the moment to connect while we can.
My apologies to the author; I commented on the wrong piece. But this one too, is a powerful morsel. Well done!
Painful and powerful. An excellent story. “Installment payments” and “hard contract” convey an emotional subject in business-like, unemotional terms; the words become even more powerful. Very well done.
This piece evokes a range of emotions. On a happy day of Thanksgiving the first sign of something terribly wrong intrudes. The juxtaposition of Thanksgiving with the ticking time bomb of the cruel inevitability of a debilitating disease elicits sadness and despair for a future changed forever. Yet we can’t ignore the gratitude for the quality of the love shared.
