My cell phone rings. I don’t get to it in time. I view the missed call. Mom. I don’t know what to think. Relief for accidentally missing it so that I don’t have to feel guilt for intentionally “missing” it? The phone buzzes in my hand, letting me know there’s a message.

“Just wanted to let you know that ground turkey is on sale at the store for $2 a package. I know you guys used to eat a lot of it, but I’m not sure anymore. Thought I’d let you know just in case. Love you, honey.”

I close my door and the tears slide.

I guess the mourning hasn’t stopped.
