A Fleeting Memory
November 11th, 2006 @ 12:00 pm

I’m not sure how it happened. I was driving home from work. I was tired, a little stressed about moving and all the burdens I’ve been carrying for so long. I’d finished a mystery on CD, and I put Celine Dion’s Christmas album in the player. There was “Oh, Holy Night” in all its glory. […]

Mom and Nana
October 29th, 2006 @ 11:30 am

I really like this photo of my mother and grandmother. My grandmother was an amazing woman and I loved her dearly. When Nana died it just devastated mom, and I have always been a little sad that my son never got a chance to know his great-grandmother. And it pains me more than I can […]

Insurance Issues

Here is a letter pulled from mom’s old computer hard drive. I have no way of knowing if she ever actually printed and mailed it to Dr. Akey.   October 23, 2006 Dear Dr. Akey, In all the time I have been your patient, I have never received what I believe to be adequate support […]

Americorps READS!
October 15th, 2006 @ 5:45 pm

Mom was very, very proud of the work she did for Americorps. She worked there from approximately 2002 until 2008 and I know she was thrilled to be doing something that reminded her of Camelot. Here’s a letter she wrote to prospective volunteers. On her old computer hard drive I found this file titled volunteer […]

A Big Chicken
August 6th, 2006 @ 12:31 pm

I have no idea where this photo was taken. Surely someone who knows mom will be able to tell me. There simply can’t be that many ten-foot tall chickens in the world. The file is stamped August 6th, 2006 at 3:31 PM Eastern, although I cannot confirm whether that is accurate.

Hello Again Again

  From: Gagne, Kathleen To: [redacted] Subject: Hello Again Again (2) Sent: May 26, 2006 Hi, Brenda, Robin, and Tony (I hope) David ran in the Los Angeles Marathon on April 19. He is 32 and has never run a marathon before. His number was 23647, and I think you can see pics of him […]

A Letter to Dr. Akey
May 15th, 2006 @ 3:26 pm

On mom’s old computer I found a file dated May 15th, 2006 named Dr. Akey 5-25-06.doc.1 It’s clearly a letter to her doctor. We always joked that mom was a hypochondriac, primarily because she spent so much of her youth living upstairs from a funeral home and surrounded by death and stories of it. The […]
