For twenty years he was right there and she didn’t have a clue.
Two decades ago Rita Wolfensohn’s life changed when her 29 year old son Louis moved out of the family home. From that point on mother and son had no contact with each other. That changed last month when the legally blind, elderly woman was hospitalized and her sister-in-law, Josette Buchman went to her home to pick up some personal belongings to take to the hospital. Josette found the home in complete disarray, and to her shock discovered the fully intact skeleton of her nephew lying on a mattress on the floor. Still dressed in jeans and a shirt, it was as if he had laid down and never woke up.
One police source commented “It’s like some reverse ‘Psycho’ scene,” but unlike Norman’s fetish with his dead mother, Mrs. Wolfensohn maintains that her son moved out and authorities say the man died of natural causes.
What a tragedy. The greater tragedy is that for twenty years Rita thought her son had cut her out of his life and no longer loved her.
The lesson here is to always make sure the ones we love know that we love them, that we always show it and that we always we say it.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
