just talked to the TropicalFrewtNut (aka my niece in Florida) who asked if I had called mom yesterday, seeing as how it was the infamous anniversary of dad’s passing, to which I had to admit that the date had totally slipped my mind.

I had just talked to mom on Friday, and she reminded me that “the date” was approaching, and commented that she hoped none of the family showed up at her house over the weekend and wanted to turn it into a 4th of July celebration like they did last year right after the funeral.

Generally, I think mom is handling being alone pretty well. We talk frequently, and well, I guess I just didn’t know what to say to justify calling on that day. Trying to turn the conversation into some small talk would only have seemed like I was ignoring the meaning of the day…. so I guess it was best to just not call.

According to niece, sis called and sent flowers for mom to take to the cemetery… isn’t she right on it. Nah, I shouldn’t be mean. I’m glad somebody sent flowers and had the nerve to call.
