Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Good vibes and thoughts as calm as I can muster -- oh, well, lets call them aspirations to think calmly -- on their way. {{{Beth}}}

OK. All the best to you.

Painful as wrapping up a parent's things can be, it is a way of moving forward in itself, an approach to closure and, to the extent that the things gathered up are passed along to others who need them, it's a kindness to others. Having someone along to help is very good.

Best of luck --

I wish you strength in the days ahead
and may you find peace as you tackle these final duties for your mother
