So this is Letters to my Mother, but I had to take a different tack when I realized that it was almost Father’s Day and I am thinking about the two of them. They were together for over 50 years if you count the time they were dating before they married. That’s a long time – many people don’t even live that long, let alone live with someone else’s presence being central in their life. When my father got sick and could no longer live in their home my mother would go to see him every day. She didn’t have a car and she had to take the bus, but she would make this journey regardless of the weather.
