If you’ve been following this blog for awhile, you’ve met my mother

Mother-daughter relationships. A topic so rich whole blogs–hell, whole social media channels–could be devoted to it. I have very occasionally posted about my mother here.

Today I write with the news that on Halloween and a Blue Moon, October 31, 2020, my mother passed away. Here follow four links: Her obituary, and, in reverse chronological order, three posts on True Stories Well Told about my mother and me.

Jean White about 1980, I think

Revisiting the Sunset Wall

The Dawn Wall and the Sunset Wall

The Mother Trip, set in 1967

Thank you all, who have accompanied me in the experiment of writing true stories about our own messy, complicated, impossible-to-decipher lives. As we go forward, let’s remember to always be kind to one another.

    Sarah, I’m so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. She sounds like a very interesting person and you were lucky to have her for so long. I look forward to reading your stories about her.
