A testament to love

Timothy Kincaid

October 30th, 2012

You will need tissues. You will.

A year ago, my Uncle Tom died of cancer in the arms of his partner of 33 years.

We knew he would pass quickly after we brought him home from the hospital. But his partner wanted his last hours to be in their home. Not knowing whether he would hang on for days or hours, I offered to stay overnight so Scott could rest. I had the privilege of being there for their last 24 hours together. My self-assigned role was to remain awake so Scott could sleep.

Go read the rest at the Duluth News Tribune.

But be sure you have tissues. You have been warned.

testament (not testiment)

What a wonderful story. But having grown up not far from Duluth, I have to think it will fall on deaf ears for the most part.

But it is a testiment to my poor spelling.

thanks, now fixed.

I’ve lived in Duluth my whole life, and I gotta say it’s surprisingly a pretty progressive community.
