The members of the Board which ran the Church and Miriam House, were informed that the Matron they had appointed, was bed ridden.
They didn’t care.
They didn’t care about Selma Rashford Grindley, because she had informed them that the President, Paul Mollusk, had appropriated a great deal of money for unnecessary repairs.
Her revelation did not gain Selma accolades, but branded her as a snitch.
That she was dying was a shoulder shrug.
Because they took no interest, they were unaware she had been taken from the hospital, returned to Miriam House, and left to die in a bed in the Matron’s House.
This kind of disinterest was standard. This is why they had lost whatever value they had inherited.
