Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

Greetings from Texas,
That's rough. I lost my Mom to cancer a couple of years ago. All I will say is I'm not sure I would ride it out like she did. My prayers to Bob's wife and for Bob as well. Somebody best be looking out for him too.

Sorry to hear about your Mom, Art. Cancer is a tough row to hoe for the entire family.

Greetings from Texas,
Thank you Zack. Mom was one tough lady, but even to the end she was still Mom. I remember when she learned some folks were coming up the hall to her hospital room. She was frail and had lost most of her hair, but she would not be seen by anyone but family without her teeth! I was sent to stall them while she "got ready".

Thanks for the post, thoughts and prayers.

Art, Sorry to hear about your mom and thank you very much for the prayers.
