  • My time down in South Carolina the past two weeks was quite intense. The experience of being with Mom for the last 11 hours of her life was surely the most sacred and honored time I have spent in my 57 + years. Going through the process of planning her service, closing up her condo, being in touch with my siblings around the country and the world, and the extended family, was all difficult, and emotional.

    Throughout it all, I felt lovingly supported, and even, at times, carried through it, by the overwhelming love and support, and the dedications, of so many of my Cowbird “family”. Although I have yet to meet one of you, face to face, you are surely, many of you, a part of my family, and I hold a special place in my heart for you all.

    I just wanted to acknowledge how much your love, concern, and support meant to me as I went through the longest two weeks of my life. I am deeply humbled and touched by you all. Thanks, from the bottom of my cowbird heart!
