82: Alison Loris — A Place for Mom

angelsn.jpg

Some of us have wishes for what happens to our physical selves after we die. Some of us don't care, but some of us do. Alison Loris helped her mom find her place.

Alison told this story in May 2018 when the theme was "Remembering."

Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.

In 2009 I jumped into a pool after my 2-year-old had fallen in. Between the time I jumped and the time I got to him, I had time to wonder if he would need CPR, if I knew CPR and time to have a quick memory of a family I knew growing up. This story was part of our Oct. 1, 2015 Story Night. The night's themes were those that could be found in Jonathan Evison's book, The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving. The book was the featured title in Kitsap Regional Library's "One Book, One Community" program for 2015.
