A friend of mine died this week. She was my brother’s mother-in-law, Gertrude Peterson.

Every time I saw her, she would laugh, and put her hands into a V under her chin as a sort of NASA docking station for my chin and give me a smooch on the lips.

She was in her late 80s.

Those are some of the best moments of my life.
