So sad for a friend

I was on the train Friday night and reading Facebook when I saw Nina's post.

Her mother died Friday.

Drew and I are at an age where we and our contemporaries are dealing with octogenarian parents and all the issues if aging.   Drew had been helping Nina with paperwork issues, Nina's father is in a nursing home and she's trying to get him more benefits.  But her mother had been in relatively good health.

Nina's mother went to the nursing home Friday morning, and was hit by a delivery truck as she made her way through the parking lot.  Apparently the driver didn't see the old lady hunched over her walker.
