Virus Outbreak 1 Million Lost

Karen McCulloch, left, and her daughter, Kirsten, hold a photo of Karen's mother, Mary Jacq McCulloch, at the North Carolina Botanical Garden where they used to bring her on outings from her nursing home, Thursday, March 10, 2022, in Chapel Hill, N.C. Mary Jacq's death came at the height of a North Carolina spring. Now, with the season here again, Karen is reminded of their drives together to gaze at the trees in blossom. Mary Jacq's favorite were the redbuds. "They are stunning magenta," Karen says. "I can't see one in bloom without thinking, 'Mom would love this.' Kind of like her, brightly colored and demanding attention."
