Too Many Memories

   Too many memories, in too small a space, with too many people.  I lasted about twenty minutes and then fled.  Did get to meet the newest two additions to the extended family, who were asleep at the time.  I'm still only a great-aunt but it's only a matter of time until the oldest nephew's oldest child does something about that.

     My sister shared a thought that I have had, too: our mother lost her father when she was in her twenties, and her own mother a decade later. We never realized how much a void that must have left.

Is there a reason "space" is in the first sentence of the last three posts?

I can't imagine Ms. Ecks, both my parents are still alive, but I wish you a easement of pain. Be well Ms. Ecks.

Anon: there is now.

JayNola: thank you.
