Bills Queen Classy Sassy And A Bit Smart Assy Shirt! The reason there’s no day specified for my mother’s passing is that I can’t remember what day it was. It’s all a blur. Even now, 15 years later. I know, at least I think it was late in the month, a few days after my older son’s birthday, but I can’t remember any more than that. I had no idea how tough my mother’s life had been until well after she was gone, and it was only through piecing together bits and pieces of information brought up in casual conversation with my sisters and cousins that I was able to begin to paint an accurate picture of just how difficult it was.
