''TEA STICKY BUNS and the BODY OF CHRIST'': Postscripts from a Nursing Home

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, Feb 17, 2009 - Biography & Autobiography - 252 pages
Tea, Sticky Buns and the Body of Christ, POSTSCIPTS FROM a NURSING HOME, is the story of one family, their beloved but stubborn father, and his last months in a nursing home. A “home” wasn’t exactly what any of them had planned...not that they ever had a plan. See how they coped - sort of - with all of the angst, incontinence and ongoing irony. Along the way, read about a nun with a bird on her shoulder, fights that erupted during bingo and daughters who laughed, cried and crumbled as they became the raw meat of the “sandwich generation.”
