As I slid my finger under the plain white seal, ripping open the large envelope, I couldn’t help but think about what this meant. After eighteen and a half months, this was the final set of papers. I have received so many large white envelopes since August 29, 2021. But this one would be the last. This settles the estate.

My grandmom was like a mother to me, so serving as the executrix of her estate has been an honor. At the same time, it has been a way to stay “connected” to her.

I miss her.

She loved me like no one else ever did and she told me so, every chance she got. I think everyone should have someone like that in their life. Grandmom and I didn’t have as much time together as we should have. People and situations kept us apart at times, but she never stopped loving me.

As I signed my name today, next to the neon arrow placed carefully by the attorney, I wrote so slowly…knowing that another jumbo white envelope would not arrive again, connecting us together in this odd way.


One thought on “Signature

  1. Grandmothers are so special and play such an important role in our lives. Their love is like no other. May you hold her memories close and continue to find ways to feel connected to her. ❤
