NPR host Scott Simon tweets his mother’s dying days from the LA Times
Read the article, then go to Scott Simon’s Twitter feed and read his tweets. Do it when you’re someplace quiet, where you’re alone or you don’t mind if those around you see you crying. Do it slowly, carefully. Think about those you’ve lost and those you can’t imagine life without.
When you’re done reading Scott’s beautiful but brief messages grab all those people you love and pull them close to you. Hug them just a little tighter for you, or they, will be gone much too soon.
