Mary Holcomb (R) accepts a service award from Contact of Chattanooga for volunteerism

Many of you remember Mary Holcomb from her appearance in our Fall 2007 newsletter, describing her valiant struggle with Parkinson’s disease.

We are saddened to report that Mary passed away this past weekend.  We had come to know her well over the years for her poetry, her friendship and her willingness to help us in our advocacy of long term care planning.

Often times, we hear of someone “losing their battle” with a disease upon their passing. We like to think that Mary won her battle. As she stated in our newsletter, “I try to focus on being positive, not dwelling on problems and being grateful for the gifts I have. My poems are meant to encourage others to do the same.”  Mary has achieved her goal of showing grace and strength in the face of adversity, an achievement that flew in the face of her condition.  Well done, Mary Holcomb.

About tennesseelongtermcare

Long term care is a risk we all face, regardless of age. Need may result from an accident, a serious health condition or as part of the aging process. The consequences to our physical, financial and emotional well-being can be catastrophic if we postpone planning until after the need for care arises. After all, our health is ever only as good as it is today. Long term care coverage provides a vehicle to guarantee your family an income stream and to maintain lifestyle in the event you have an extended care need. It is vital protection for your family’s personal, emotional and financial well-being. Lindsey & Associates is the Chattanooga area's premiere source for long term care insurance planning. Serving Chattanooga for nearly fifteen years, Lindsey & Associates was founded by Gail R. Lindsey, M.S., CLTC who sought to be an effective advocate for families with extended care needs after a successful career as a therapist. Lindsey & Associates is unique in that their planners are specialists in long term care insurance and approach their work from a perspective of education and advocacy, not the "bottom line". If you feel that you owe it to your family to hear all the options when it comes to your future care, we would encourage you to contact one of our LTC planners. We meet with individuals and families to find the most cost-effective way for them to age in place, at home, with the dignity and care they have earned over a lifetime of hard work.
