Its really sad. I worked at a home and their families only showed up to fill pill cases or when they died to get their stuff. One woman had a mom that was dieing in there and said call me when she dies.

I'm sure it can be hard on the family to see their parents/grand parents dying. My fiance has always had trouble watching her family age, I can see it in her eyes that it is draining her emotionally and physically.

Though there are those people who genuinely don't care and would like their family to pass for their possessions. (my mother's side of the family is doing this now, and it really infuriates me[my mother is pissed too])

You could be right but it always seemed that they didn't care but it could be they couldn't handle it.

I love the new baby and the afghan. I wish I can crochet better. I am better at knitting.

I don't knit well at all. My stitches are too tight.

My great uncle is in the hospital. Apparently he wasn't eating right and wasn't taking his medicine. Hopefully they'll put him in a nursing home or get a home health care person to come a few days a week.
