Rudy Panucci On Pop Culture

Monday Mourning

The above picture is a composite that I made of my parents a few years back for their anniversary. It’s their two favorite photos of each other, combined into one. I have pretty much dedicated the last fifteen years to taking care of my parents full time. Dad passed away in 2003, after a battle with leukemia. I mentioned in my sketchy bio, back when I started this blog, that I’d been taking care of Mom here at home since she suffered a major stroke in 1997. We lost Mom Saturday morning. She had a peaceful end, after fighting to live for many years more than any doctor expected.

I’ll be back posting in a few days.

    Hang in there, Rudy. Sounds like you did right by her. Sweet portrait of your parents.

    Sorry for your loss, Rudy. You have my deepest sympathies.

    My condolences, Rudy. I know this has been a long and difficult struggle for you.

    Rudy, my sympathies are with you. You started taking care of your sick parents back in 1990, when I left WVa for New Jersey. Although I haven’t been there in the past decade-plus, I know that you took great care of your mother. I’m so sorry that she has passed on.
