“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.


We lost your voice today. T-Mobile had a glitch and your, “Hi. This is Anne. Speak your peace,” went away.

I feel really bad for Dic. He’s been calling you every day, and I don’t think there’s a way to get it back.

I wish we had taken more video of you, and certainly more audio. I have lots of pictures, though, and you’re beautiful in every one of them.

I really miss your hugs!
