"Remembering and admiring two hard-working black men" by Rhett S. Jones

I have spent as much time as possible with Rhett S. Jones this week. No one really knows whether his current illnesses will subside or will take his last breath.

It's a weird thing to witness: the medical actors, their tools, the visitors, the shifting reports.

Rhett's eyes and words twinkle and pause.. And we wonder. What next?

I found this wonderful essay he wrote about his father and maternal grandfather.
