  • After Mom died, I had to decide what parts of her I needed to bury and what parts I wanted to keep alive. Of course, this went on unconsciously. I didn't make a list or anything. I simply found that here or there, in this decision or that, Mom's opinion mattered or it didn't. It's kind of astonishing how much power a mother still holds even after her death.
