"Remove your coats and belts. Empty your pockets."
Today I also wrote the check to pay off her funeral.
We're inching slowly through the process, and one of these days I'll be able to think of my mother not as a stack of papers or pile of debts, but as my mommy. She was a woman and she had a life, and I hate reducing her to a mere ledger of debits and credits.
