The man became enraged and sent her to hospice the next day. His family is divided on whether he did the right thing or not. What do you think? Read the full story here.

Man sends dying mother to hospice after hurtful comment 💔

A man lost his wife five years ago and was left to raise his 10-year-old son, who has Down syndrome, and his 6-year-old daughter alone. Recently, his dying mother asked to come to live with him to spend more time with her grandchildren. However, things went wrong when she made a hurtful comment, saying that his son with Down syndrome was not his real son. The man was hurt and angry and sent his mother to hospice the next day. Even though some of his family and friends called him cruel, others thought he did the right thing. The situation raises questions about acceptable behavior in someone else's home and what is forgivable when someone is dying. What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
