Disclaimer: I’m grieving and have more feelings than I know what to do with. Writing is one way to sort through them. Not sure if they’ll make sense, but here they are.
Sometime during Carla’s final two or three weeks. Probably Mother’s Day. Maybe the Sunday before. In Reilly’s parents’ house.
We’ve had dinner.
We’re sitting in the living room, just hanging out. All the kids are there.
One of them asks, “Do you want to go downstairs and watch a movie or something?”
Carla says, “I like sitting up here, talking to all of you.”
We stay upstairs.
She loves it.
We love that she loves it.
Because we love her.
