“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.

Hi, Mom.

I really hope you’re listening somewhere.

Dic seems to think we’re going to split a million dollars. You know Dic.

We still haven’t taken your ashes to the beach, but you would know that. I’m not sure what we’re going to do for Christmas. Maybe then.

I’m pretty sure David and [redacted] will be in Florida for the holidays.

I’m planning to plan a weight-loss plan of my own.

I think it might include a lot of dancing.

Wherever you are, my heart is with you.

I love you and I miss you
very, very much.
