We went down to the little Chinese place near our house and I ordered my mom’s favorite dish and brought it back home. Naturally, I thought of her. I used to visit her in Willimantic (CT) and do this (not frequently enough), along with a newspaper, a lottery ticket, Diet Pepsi, the little things she missed. She was living in senior citizen housing and pretty isolated. I made the trek from Springfield, (MA) when I could. I was struggling myself in various ways. Then I would sit down and watch a few of her favorite show with her–like Murder She Write. I miss her a lot and wish her life had gone in a different direction. But she had a good heart and I know that she loved me…
