I saw my children, when I looked into togirls’ faces. It damaged me open in a way we still can’t fully expound. Now let me tell you something. Thirty or so of them came and stood in front of me and prayed for me in Thai. Nevertheless, it wasn’t done to them, merely as none of this had been done to me.

I had invited my exhusband, Matthew, to stay with us we’d separated 3 years earlier but remained good buddies, and he at times came up to house for sleepovers with girls but he couldn’t make it this time.

It was a chill night, therefore we lit a vast fire in fireplace before dinner, and later Mike and I put girls to bed and explore them How Grinch Stole Christmas!
We brushed up ashes that had blown out from tohearth. Mike helped me wrap everyone’s presents and set them out all around totree, and we filled their stockings with candies and little toys, after my parents went to bed.

It’s a well bill Duke was among to 4 men at my side bed when I woke up in hospital on that Christmas morning. One day he asked me out and I said yes. This is where it starts getting entertaining.

Earlier this fall we walked from Bill’s house in Brooklyn to ‘Green Wood’ Cemetery to figure out a place to bury my ashes daughters. I felt strangely peaceful, though facing that physicality place is, truly tough, if they came to terms with that. After virtually 1 years, I was almost ready for them to have a final resting place, Know what, I kept thinking that we must have been taking them to their first day of school, or having a ‘parent teacher’ conference. Our relationship, junior as it was, had no future, mike was doing his best.
None of them, though, understood what to do with me.
