See my mother’s faint image. She is standing behind me. She is mouthing something that I cannot quite make out.

She looks happy and peaceful. I ask her was she watching yesterday, as we read the tribute at her funeral. She nods, and smiles. I hope that means that she was proud of us, and approved of our summary of her amazing life, and all the wonderful things that she did.

I imagine her, looking over my shoulder, reassuring me, a gentle hand on my shoulder. Her proud smile will stay with me, as she looks down on me from heaven from now on.
