Kathleen Overby said...

The Spirit of Food touched me deeply, as did Anne's post.

Loverby sees this grief in his dad's eyes because he encouraged all five boys to LEAVE the prairie. He made sure they all got an education because he didn't have one. I've never met a man with more wisdom than he has. He has sold the homestead. It is the end of the most honoring work a man could have - in this family. I weep.
