Mr Moorthy died. A few weeks back.
His wife came to see me today. To collect medicines for her sons.
Mr Moorthy was conscious almost till his end. The morning he died , he called both his sons to his bedside.. He hugged them and blessed them. His eyes overflowed.
What pains me deeply is that nothing definite has been arranged regarding the sons.
Who will take care of them once their mother too passes away...?
From what I understood, they had expected her brothers to take care of the two sons after taking whatever property they have. But it was towards his end that they realized that it was not going to work out.
She is now searching for some institution which would take care of them.
I felt so sorry for the old woman. Widowed at 72yrs. With not much education or exposure, she is somehow grappling with her life, alone, burdened by her two sick sons.
I told her to do something as early as possible. To arrange something with the help of her brothers. Meanwhile I would also try to contact a few institutions.
May God help her.
May his soul rest in peace..
PS. I had written about Mr.Moorthy and his special family on March 6, 2005.
