A proud father
It was a weekend filled with emotions.
Daughter Emma graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi Friday afternoon with a major in sociology and minors in psychology and criminal justice.
First and foremost, I was filled with pride when her name was called and she walked across the stage in Reed Green Coliseum.
Close to Nowhere
First, I need to say “Thank You” for all the love, prayers, concern and support while I was out of circulation and now that I’m back. I’m really touched!
It was really strange being off work and either at the hospital or at home. I haven’t been a patient since I was 26. I have been a caregiver, it seems like, most of my life. When I was a teenager, my mom was in and out of the hospital. After I married, Pop’s grandmother and aunt were both in poor health and I ferried back and forth to doctors and hospitals. Pop’s mom developed several illnesses and I added her to the doctors and hospitals, along with Pop’s younger brother John Paul, who developed chronic digestive problems.

In some situations, rules don’t quite work
Some of you have been to the Fontaine House in Memphis’ Victorian Village and perhaps saw the interesting exhibit on funeral and mourning customs in the Old South. The Victorian era had an etiquette for dying with as many strictures as that many-ruled culture had for living. Remember how scandalized all Atlanta was when Scarlett O’Hara danced with Rhett Butler at a Confederate ball before her prescribed time of mourning for her dead husband was over?
