I remember that winter day. I remember your complaining of a terrible headache that had been bugging you for a couple of days. I remember suggesting peppermint tea, as I'd just read it was good for headaches. I remember several days later when one of my brothers called to tell me you'd collapsed in front of Stoneridge Mall. I remember visiting you, but you were clearly not there. I remember feeling overwhelmed, because dad's death had been less than a year ago.

I remember being told much later, in May, that you'd just passed. I remember not feeling much of anything other than relief.

I remember not mourning you until much later.

This is a sad memory
