The Living Memorial

This is a paper sent to me after my mother's death that I believe originally came with a letter addressed to my aunt who oversaw funeral arrangements. The big issue was that my mother had no person she could trust her children with and so turned to her ex-husband's sister. 

the remains of this paper show you very much how my life turned out. The truth is that those of us who have children already have a living memory that is a testament to how we did in life.  

My mother did everything she could for me save for marrying a good man. She died in 1990.
