A Letter to Heaven
I can't believe it has been a year since you left us. You always said you'd never make it to 95, and I guess you were right. You LIVED TO THE FULLEST 94 wonderful years, though. Did you know your end was near when you called me to your house and gave me your beautiful evening gowns? Remember how much fun we had when I modeled them for you? Then we went through your closet full of shoes so I could try them on and see if they fit. It was like Christmas for you as we opened the boxes and discovered the beautiful shoes you wore way back when you were a working lady. I was surprised that some of them had never been worn, but maybe it was because they were so expensive you didn't want to mess them up. And those four-inch heeled black feather stilettoes from Fredrick's; did you think I might wear them with the trench coat you gave me? The one you said I could put on over anything (or nothing) to pick the kids up from school? You had us in stitches, remember?
