A Caring Woman Reviled by Neighbors

* Congratulations to Isobel Oxx! What a wonderful service she is providing to her fellow human beings [by opening a home for the terminally ill on Westlake Lake]. Too bad her neighbors are too mean-spirited to see what a valuable opportunity she is giving them to teach their children compassion for the sick and dying. Instead, they'll pass along their intolerance and hostility to create another generation of uncaring and selfish people. If anything is making that neighborhood undesirable, it is the actions of Ms. Oxx's neighbors against her, not her efforts to make a difference by helping people die with peace and dignity.
