Letty, I Love You Always
in recent months i asked you what you would like said about you at the funeral, and if you would like a memorial service.
"No Memorial service," you replied. "Just forget about me."
I won't forget some things about you.
I won't forget how, when watching people suffering from floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados, etc., on the news, how you cried for them and cried for their suffering and sincerely wished for their sufferings to end.
I won't forget how sweetly you blew onto the food we prepared to feed the birds and squirrels at the park, how you blessed that food and threw in some soft kisses, shyly, sweetly, with your eyes a little closed, thinking of your sunny boys and of all the wild animals and birds, and how hard their lives are.
I won't forget how shyly you told me you loved me, and how cautious you were to express these very tenderest feelings, lest they be misunderstood or worse, not fully heard.
I won't forget how everything reminded you of a song...
I won't forget how you dropped this guest house of a body, no longer of any use to you, no longer able to function to support your life, and took your final breaths with the same courage and dignity that you showed throughout your last months of life. You knew this was the time that your life is ending, and you were humble, and you were instantly forgiving when i was impatient, churlish and petty, and you consistently let me know your gratitude and love. I love you, Letty, my darling Mom. Go in peace and may we meet again soon.

Letty was wonderful, warm and witty. She told me she met her husband playing tennis. "It was love at first set," she said. I will miss her notes. They always made me chuckle, and always seemed to arrive during a stressful time. She always asked about my four-legged kids. Much love to Rosa, Marshall, and the family. Gerry and your former DC neighbors send love and sympathy. May God bless you always, and especially in this time of sorrow.
