On Saturday, Mira got a phone call from a cousin. Her uncle Arthur—her cousin’s dad, her dad’s brother—had just died.
Mira’s son and daughter-in-law are visiting this week, and she commented to them, “Carol’s life is never going to be the same. Starting today, it will all change.” I raised an eyebrow, wondering what she meant. Then I remembered: Mira’s own dad’s second Yahrtzeit is coming up.
