Memories, treasures and stuff

16 January 2013 | Lantana, Fl

I just spent two days with my sister moving my parents out of their three bedroom apartment in Lantana, Florida. They are both in the nursing portion of the facility and it was time to vacate their apartment. It is a sobering thing to look at 66 years of collected stuff and treasures. So many things that I grew up with and other times that I watched my parents accumulate all had to go somewhere. I chanted my mantra “I live in on sailboat and have not extra room. My sister and I got teary when we looked at their wedding album and I had a hard time reading my father’s love letters professing his undying love to my Mom when he was waiting to be discharged from the Army after WWII. That was 67years ago and he is still by her side, even as her mind dims.

Tonight we celebrated Dad’s 89th birthday and Mom and Dad’s 66th wedding anniversary. Harriet Wolaner and her husband Elliot Thaul joined us for dinner. Mom and Harriet go way back- they grew up in the same building in the Bronx and Harriet was at my parents wedding. For the occasion Harriet and Elliot wrote a little poem and we toasted to long lives, long marriages and long friendships.
