This is my last journal entry. Mrs. Loeb wants to collect the journals early because she says that she’s going to need a couple of weeks if we expect her to read through them all before the end of the school year. So, I guess that this is the end. I’m not sure, yet, if I’m going to start a new journal. I kind of feel like I don’t really need to keep a journal […]

Yesterday, we celebrated Mother’s Day the same way that we’ve celebrated it every year since my mother’s death; we went to the cemetery. I don’t like going to the cemetery, but my father does. He talks to my mother’s grave as if she’s really there, listening to him. I can’t do that. Even though I know that my mother’s body is buried there, I just don’t like the idea of talking to a bunch of […]

Every winter, for as far back as I can remember, my family has gone to Walt Disney World for a glorious week of “fun in the sun.” It all started the year that my father was invited to attend his first medical convention in the city of Orlando. Because it also happened to be the home of the Magic Kingdom, my […]

I know that I have been using the word “death” a lot, but I don’t mean to be morbid or anything. It’s just that I can’t stand those awful alternatives “passed away” and “passed on.” People who use those terms always sound so full of false sympathy to me. Whenever I hear someone say, “I was terribly sorry to hear that so and so passed away,” a chill runs down my spine and I can’t […]
