Today I read this story in Texas Monthly: (It is a MUST READ.)
This is what true devotion is all about. This family's love was so strong that such devotion was unquestioned and such effort was not about duty, but only about the overpowering love of a parent for her stricken son, and about two sons' love for their mother and for each other. But it's really even more than that when you read this story. You'll feel so much for everyone in this family who lived through this challenge that few people ever have to face.
"Thirty-five years ago Dallas—and the country—was gripped by the tragic story of John McClamrock, a high school football player paralyzed during a violent tackle. But after the newspapers moved on, another story was quietly unfolding, one of courage, perseverance, and a mother’s fierce love."
