Autumn leaves

Grace Muir Hamilton

Linda died on the 8th August.  Two days after her funeral it was my dead Dads birthday.  Now it’s my dead Mums birthday.  The fun just never starts.

I never forgave my Mum for shunning Linda.  16 years we’d been married when my Mum died and they never met.  Linda was right, it was my Mum who chose that path. How she could do that to her only son I’ll never know.  Linda was and is the girl I love. She was my life.  Yet the woman who gave me life couldn’t get past her ludicrous prejudices.

We had an uneasy truce over the last few years of her life. She was getting older and despite everything I would visit her every month and she knew she could phone me if she was in need.   I know you were widowed at the same I age I was and that life had been cruel, but I was your son. Mum, (pictured below on the left) how could you.
