A Sad Anniversary

Today is the third anniversary of my mother's death. Sometimes it seems like it was another lifetime ago, and other times it feels like yesterday.

There are days I miss her terribly, especially when I try to remember something about the community where I grew up and I wish I could ask her (since Dad didn't grow up in that area, and doesn't know a lot of the local history from before we moved to the farm where I grew up). Yet I just feel a certain relief that she was spared these last few months, especially given the memory care issues she had in the last years of her life.
