Dear Gloria:

It is a timeless obligation we bear: our parents create us and shepherd us through childhood, and in return it is the duty of sons and daughters to see them out of this old world with as much dignity, love, and compassion as possible. In this way, nature exacts from its sons and daughters, the price of their childhood.

My thoughts and love are with you and your family as you all pay that hardest of tolls ...
