The obituary for my mother, Bartie Mumford, published last week, mentions I was with my mother when she died. My husband, Matthew Sienkiewicz was with me, as he had been all week, playing his guitar for her. She loved listening to him play, and the staff at the Care Center also enjoyed the music. He was as big a part as I, if not bigger, in her last week, providing love and comfort to us both. She called us her “Mutt and Jeff, her guardian angels,” so it is important he be recognized for being there too.
