“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.

Mr. P.B. died Sunday morning. I guess most people wouldn’t understand, but it really hurts to lose him.

One of the singers on America’s got talent sang “In the arms of the angels.” He was so tiny and so sick. He died here on my couch with me giving him as much love as I could. I really, really related to him. He was wounded and often stayed by himself — like me.

I miss you, Mom. If you see Mr. P.B., tell him I truly, truly loved him.

And I truly, truly, truly love you. I miss you so much.
