“Last Trip Home”
Book discussion and signing with debut author, Jamye Stewart –
Gaylene Frances Clough was my mother’s name. Our Lord sent His angels to take her home on July 19th, 2001 at approximately 9:10 p.m. CST, at the young age of 64. She died of lung cancer and liver metastases. I was my mother’s primary caregiver during most of her illness.
My goal, in writing this book, is to hopefully help others who are facing similar situations. During the nine months that I was taking care of my mother, I faced numerous frustrations, anxieties and heartaches. As I attempted to research possible avenues of support (financial and emotional), I began to realize that there were a large number of dead ends and runarounds. My mother had no job, no medical insurance and no money at the time that she was diagnosed. Our family faced quite a few challenges and disappointments, eventually there was some satisfaction and… gratitude.
It is my prayer that you gain something from these pages, if it’s only a glimpse of hope. Hope can brighten your day.
