Mission Accomplished in light of visiting Rose's Mom and checking on her. She seems to be doing OK. And, we chatted for a bit and Amachi spoke English. I understood. One reason maybe that Amachi is doing OK might be the fact that she is not a daily witness to Rose's suffering. No small thing. And, it is a fact that time, in my opinion, does heal. It is not always the same for all. Some never seem to miss a beat while others have a more difficult time. And, there is no right or wrong way to grieve. I choose to find lessons in my own grief. And, in a sense, I don't even know what they are as they are still emerging. For now, I'm fulfilling my mission of checking on Amachi. I do remember distinctly the day Rose asked me to check on her Mom. We were on the way back from treatment and Rose was feeling pretty good. We were quiet and Rose was resting and said very quietly, "When I 'm gone, would you check on my Mom once in awhile."
