Adriana was a lovely across-the-lane neighbor whom I enjoyed chatting with the past 25 years since moving to Vancouver. I liked to brag to my friends that she and Vittorio had the best vegetable garden in East Van, which they did. When Vittorio was alive and still able, he prepared his compost as if it were gold, which it was, producing a bounty—pole beans, tomatoes, lettuces.

When it was the season Adriana would always call me over after I parked my car and send me home with a handful of something delicious, usually tomatoes or lettuce.

I went to check on her after the recent snow, to see if I could shovel her steps, and learned from a neighbor that she had passed last week.

I already miss looking across the lane to see her friendly wave while hanging laundry. Their home will always be Adriana’s and Vittorio’s in my mind and I will always remember them kindly and with affection.
