“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.


This is crazy! I don’t want to get rich because you died in pain at the hands of idiots.

I’d rather win the lottery and take you on a trip around the world.

I can’t believe I went to Maui. The sad part was the pall hanging over it. I really want [redacted], but I don’t know if that will ever happen.

I wish I could really talk to you.

I love you,
