“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.

Imagine we’re in a completely new cycle.

I have a beautiful dog and a silly black cat.

I’ve reconnected with Cricket and Gary, and I hope to see them soon. again.

This is the last entry mom wrote in her “Letters to Mom” journal. It’s the only entry without a salutation — no “Dear Mom,” or, “Hi, Mom,” like all the rest — and the way she ended it is definitely odd. The three or four sentences are completely out of character for her.
