In mid-winter, I am reminded of Albert and his mother Sueanne, and time I spent at their home midway up a mountain in the Eastern Kentucky town of Hilly. Albert suffered from mental illness with hallucinations that led him to violence. His mother was a small, gracious woman; she cared for Albert. I visited them weekly to make sure Albert was taking his medication and that Sueanne was safe.
