“Letters to Mom”
One of her journals I found is titled “Letters to Mom”. It’s a collection of letters she wrote to her mother — my “Nana Anna” — starting about four months after her death.
I’m really missing you tonight. I’m in the Holiday Inn we stayed in when you came to my graduation.
I’m here for a stupid conference. I hate them. I have to kennel Mocha and leave the cats, and I never get anything out of them.
I was talking to a bank teller today. She lost her mom. I was telling her about how you used to take a pad with you to dinner so you could tell me what you ate.
I loved your laugh! I wish I could hear it again a thousand times! I love you, Mom.
I miss you,
Kathleen A. Gagne
