An emergency bleg at A Conservative Lesbian:

Right now I am sitting next to the bed of my 99-year-old dad, Hubert P. Yockey, and for the next few hours or days, he is still one of the last living nuclear physicists of the Manhattan Project. He shortened the war with Japan by improving the design of the Calutron, the machine used at Oak Ridge, Tennessee, to separate uranium for the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. After over 20 happy years caring for my late life partner, who died of complications of multiple sclerosis in 2004, I came back home in October 2006 to live with my dad and provide his care. But I need help from my friends to do my last service for him. I need to ask for donations to cover the cost of a budget cremation for him. My goal is $2,050. . . .

Please go read the whole thing and hit Cynthia’s tip jar. I did.

    Cynthia is wonderful person, I hope she gets more than she needs. I don’t have much $ but I gave what I could. May the good Lord give her strength & comfort.

    When I was desperate in Dec 2014 looking at eviction and finding no work in Maryland, Cynthia helped me…I too gave what I could afford. Cynthia, my prayers to you and your father.

    This is what shows the real difference between Conservatives and Liberals. Liberals think you’re on your own…while we will do what we can to help each other out.
