I'm Sorry Mama, I Cleaned Out Your Closets.

We placed Granny Grunt in a nursing home a couple of weeks ago. I cleaned out her apartment Thursday. My brother was coming from Iowa to see her, possibly for the last time. He was too slow. She died when he was about 2 hours from her. I was almost back to Austin with her belongings. He drove to Round Rock and we went back up to Ft. Worth on Friday to sign the papers for her cremation and one last look. It was the first time in 25 years that all 4 of her sons were in the same room. It will also be the last, we're not close.
