Ten Cents From Mac

This article was written by Jac T. Beauchamp

I recall a conversation I had with my mother, Mrs. Howard J. McNally, not long after she had a stroke and was failing rapidly.

“I’ll tell you something that is sort of scary,” she began. “Last week, I had a dream about Mac [Mother’s name for her late husband]. In the dream, he was sitting in a chair, and he said that he had come to help and advise me.
