Ten Years & Over There

Hi Mom,

So, here we are--ten years later.

Can you believe it? I can't. 

It was ten years ago tonight that we last spoke on the phone. I was on my way to Weegee's when you called; just turning on to West Esplanade.

It was 4:27 pm. The sun was shining and the world seemed normal.

God, who knew?

Remember how we promised each other we'd let the other one know what it was like...over there?

There must be a reason that you haven't clued me in. Is it because everyone experiences "Over There" differently? Maybe They won't let you talk about it.
Or maybe you've tried, but I just don't get it.

There must be a very good reason because you've never, ever broken a promise to me.

So, I guess I will be surprised.

I'm sure you already know because I tell you every day, but I really do miss you, Mom.

I miss the hell out of you.

I hope you've been able to connect with your mom & dad Over There.

Drop by when you can, okay? I'll be watching for you.

Here's a couple of flowers for you.

Love, Susie
