Michael Wilmington’s Favorite Piece
When asked by a moderator at the Minneapolis St. Paul Film Festival one year “What is your favorite piece ever written?” Michael Wilmington replied, “It is the piece I wrote about my mother, Edna.”
Edna Wilmington (1915-2009).
By Michael Wilmington
Last Wednesday night, September 30, my mother, Edna Wilmington, died at the age of 94, several hours after being discharged from Northwestern Memorial Hospital after repeated hospital stays there, and at St. Joseph’s, for a variety of health problems. She had requested me never to send her to a nursing home, but instead let her remain at home, and I honored that request. I wish now I hadn’t. I desperately want her still alive. If a nursing home could have given her even a few weeks or months more, it would have done us all a great service.
Me most of all.
