No More Letters For Awhile

My mom is mad with my dad.  She believes that he got married.  She's pissed at him.

The other day she said, "Your father.  He got married."

"How can that be?"  I said to her, "Dad is in Heaven, you can't get married in Heaven."

"Well, he must be in Hell!"  She answered back.

These letters worked for awhile.  She was happy and excited.  She loved the idea that she could communicate with dad.

Her hallucinations got the best of her and she stopped wanting to write to my dad.  She hid all the letters that he (I) wrote to her.

Maybe one day my mom will want letters from dad again, but in the meantime, we'll keep this project on the back burner for another time when it brings her happiness once more.

  1. "Love letters from heaven" Sounds like a great name for a movie. ;)

  2. So sorry. Hope things get better soon. Mom has not asked for dad in awhile. She has been talking or yelling a lot but nothing about dad that I can figure out. Hope you have a great 4th of July.
