Miranda was old and unwell. She had not gone to Florida for years. Keith and Joey could could claim they had no idea what condition she was in. Yet, why didn’t they visit?
Colin was surprised by their lack of interest.
During the years they had lived with him, he had constantly disparaged their parents, constantly elevated Miranda.
Keith and Joey were virtual zombies; if you mentioned Miranda they would chant that she was ‘A Great Mother!’ Yet why didn’t they visit?
Miranda loved them more than anyone, having written a will, leaving them Two Houses. He, the Wash Belly, only got half of one!
So how was it they, her beloved grandsons, could abandon their ‘Great Mother’?
Yet, their actions tied perfectly into Colin’s plan.
