Grief and Grit(s)

Good Grief

When a declining parent needs help, it creates a delicate balance of care and acceptance. Marsha Gray Hill thought she had found that balance, even as her mother began to show signs of dementia. But then, COVID ripped the rug out from under her, making it impossible to support her mother as she would have liked. In the end, the pandemic was what ended her mother's life. In the process, Marsha learned too much about attitudes towards elders, inadequate support structures and a lack of understanding of what it takes to be a caregiver. In sharing the story of her mother's life, she has given us a window into the lives of so many who died, and are still dying, from that terrible illness. She implores us to believe our society can do better! Listen here.

"What has impressed me the most with Marsha Gray Hill is her commitment to not only sharing her story in a deeply caring way, but also her passion to tackle a troubling trend in society where the elderly are concerned.  Her book resonates with anyone who was left scarred over the past several years and reads like comfort food for your spirit.  Marsha understands exactly what producers need and how to impact the audience with her story during a three-to-five minute interview."

"Life moves on with or without you. It’s not about fairness. It just is what it is."

AUTHOR, GRIEF and GRIT(S)


"Caring for an elderly parent is a specific stage of life that most people would rather not talk about."


- MARSHA GRAY HILL
AUTHOR, GRIEF and GRIT(S)


"The greatest tragedy would be to have lived through the age of COVID and to learn nothing as a community."


- MARSHA GRAY HILL
AUTHOR, GRIEF and GRIT(S)


"No one talks about what it’s like to become the caretaker for someone who once took care of you."


- MARSHA GRAY HILL
AUTHOR, GRIEF and GRIT(S)


"When I think about the loneliness of grief, I can’t help but think about Mama. How many times was she alone in the midst of sadness, losing her parents, her husband, her childhood friends... Andhow many times did I fly right by her, pressing on in my own rhythm of daily life? She must have felt just as isolated and misunderstood as I do. But how could I possibly have understood that?"


- MARSHA GRAY HILL
AUTHOR, GRIEF and GRIT(S)


"Our modern American society is a society that doesn’t value the elderly, and it’s important to think about why that is. Back in the day, the elders of the town or village would have been the center of knowledge, the accumulation of experience, culture, and wisdom collected through the ages... Senior citizens were valued; they had a concrete role in society."


- MARSHA GRAY HILL AUTHOR,

GRIEF and GRIT(S)


"It’s impossible to say what the family’s role should be when it comes to caring for the elderly. Everyone’s situation is different, and when it comes to complications regarding resources, medical care, or even time and space to accommodate someone else’s needs, there’s no easy answer."


- MARSHA GRAY HILL
AUTHOR, GRIEF and GRIT(S)


"Change always comes with complications, and sometimes the most powerful consequences are the ones we don’t consider. In our insta-connected, 2-day delivery world, who takes care of the people who once took care of us? ... If it isn’t the family, what does that mean for future generations?"
