On the way to the cemetery, I played The Rose and other songs she loved.
I used to be upset when someone would tell me I looked "just like" my mother because I knew it was untrue. I wished it were true and I knew that people actually meant it to be a compliment because everyone would always compliment my mother's looks. My brothers would NEVER say it because they always reminded me that I look just like my aunt (by the way, NOT a compliment), but when my brother Norman told me, "You DO look more like Mom the older you get." I DID take that as a compliment.
My brothers and I often remind each other when we are "acting like" our mother and it's not always a compliment either!
