Hattie (See What My Mother Wrote)
Hattie told our group all this with a deep smile that, even if it’s just for a moment, seemed to wipe away her pain. When Hattie first walked into the room, I was surprised to see her back so soon after Keith’s passing; when she told us all this, it made sense. I am glad that being in our group and having her stories here on this blog can give her this kind of comfort. I am glad that seeing his mom’s stories gave at least one man moments of inspiration and joy, even if it’s in a lifetime that was cut way too short.
Here is the blog post that I posted the day Keith passed away. I wonder if he had time to read it that day.
Here is a story that Hattie wrote back in 2010. Keith dropped some major hints for his mom to write a story about him, so she did and asked me to post it right away ;)
Vicki, if you are reading this now, thank you for sharing what you shared with Hattie. I think it gave her more comfort that you and I could ever imagine.
