Was out of town, visiting a friend. I got a call from my mother - she was in the hospital, an unfourtunate turn of events revealed her cancer was back and she's not expected to make it very much longer. I wasn't able to change my return plane ticket, and couldn't afford to get back by plane, bus, or train. It looked like I was going to miss my chance to say good-bye! I was referred to the site uship.com - and was able to book book passage as a passenger with a wonderful driver who was also a reputable business man, all in less than 4hours after posting my ad! I've gotten home, and I've been able to spend my mother's last days with her. This is a first time experience I will NEVER forget!! Thanx!!!
