The narrator’s father puts her mother into a nursing home while he carries on an affair with her old friend.  When the narrator and her little son Matt come for Thanksgiving, her mother’s old friend is staying in the house and her mother, barely conscious, is brought home for the holiday dinner and then returned to the nursing home.  The next day, after the narrator spends hours at her mother’s bedside, and sings several of her favorite hymns to her, her mother dies.

Next week:  Heirs
