|My folks as kids together. My mother's last words to me were, "Love was good."|
I hope it was.
My mother, meanwhile, looked the way that I know that she always looked in her mind's eye, even on the day that she died. She was beautiful back in the day, and I know for a fact that she took pride in being my father's Beautiful Wife.
***There were a lot of things that I never really understood about my folks, mysteries that they took to their graves. But I know that they were happy together once upon a time, and that makes it a little easier for me now as I remember them.
