Today is my parents’ 37th wedding anniversary. My mom is perpetually, notoriously late at everything. I always heard her tell people “I am on my way” when in fact she was just on the way to the bathroom to take a bath, and it takes her an hour to get dressed too. My dad says in all their years together, my mom was only early twice: on their wedding day …and to heaven.

My dad has some sense of humor. We miss you Ma. Wherever you are now, there is no more pain… We love you.
