#035: Allen and Violet Large
They won $11 million in the lottery.
They are both aged.
She suffers from advanced cancer.
They can't actually enjoy the wealth.
So what do they do?
They gave away every penny--less 2% which they justly kept "for a rainy day"--as quickly as they could organize it, which was quite difficult given her health situation. They got the money in June; it's November, and it's all gone.
This isn't ironic: it's iconic. Eatcherheartout, Alanis Morissette.
True Tattered Remnants.
