    This is so sad and so preventable. :mad: If only he had known about the free hospice care that is available to everyone in the country! Local news stated that George Doby was going blind and he was the sole caregiver for his 82 year old wife who had Parkinson's and his autistic grandson. Apparently he felt if he couldn't care for them, no one else would do so. :cry: :frown1:

    IMO, it wasn't just the allegedly loving family which failed George & Edna Doby, society at large failed them too. :angryfire2: Someone should have been able to reach out and say "let me help" or "here's a phone number to call, they can help you care for Edna and take you to doctor appts."
