The caregiving for my Uncle fell upon my mother. He did not want the family to provide hands-on care, so he made sure to have a live-in home health aide. The logistical and legal aspects of care and his estate were still significant.

After his passing, I went with my mother to help clear out the home he’d lived in for over 25 years.

The TV captures his personality so well.

My uncle was a very frugal man. These pencil stubs made us all laugh.

I suspect these ingredients are left from before my Aunt died…when I was in elementary school.
