...g of the loved one and everything else. When I had left the office I went to the restroom and cried in the stalls thinking that I am not okay that I never dealt with the pain and death of my granny. I only have memories of her and I feel that memories fade just like the person who had died and I couldn’t help but think that if I went to the funeral and the wake will I really get over the fact that I lost people that I love. Just like years ago my sister lost her baby and I was there to see her, hold her or even talk to her. And now that my granny has died I feel the same way as of now I will feel this way, but I remember less of her each day the way she smile, her eyes and her hair. Each day I can see this taking a toll on my mother, she once told me that she never understood why my dad changed the way he did after his mother died of cancer but now she knows.

- While driving through Eastern Kentucky a person will notice many things, the beautiful mountains, small towns, local businesses, and of course houses. As in any place a person goes, the houses will vary from each other, but the houses in Eastern Kentucky will share one thing in common, a front porch. The odds of someone finding a house without a front porch in Eastern Kentucky are about the same as the odds of a person finding a house in the city with a front porch. Sitting on a front porch, watching the sun make its way down over the mountains and sharing stories of the events of your day is a regular routine for Eastern Kentuckians....

- Not too long ago, I was sitting in the front porch of my friend’s house with both the friend and his father. We had just finished a day of a work for my friend’s Eagle Scout Project and sat down to chat. While I was sitting silently, my friend and his dad chattered away as if I did not exist. They insulted each other and even told some dirty jokes occasionally. I was able to smile just by listening. This was not a scene that I would see in my household. My mother and I never reached this point of familiarity.... [tags: Family, Mother, Father, Parent]

- Eulogy for Mother My mother was a complex, multi-faceted person. Many of you here today knew my mother personally, and many of you knew my mother indirectly through one of her family members.

As I have reached adulthood and become a mother myself, I have also known her as a friend.... [tags: Eulogies Eulogy]

- My Experience as a Teenage Mother Twenty-six years have brought many changes to my home in the mountains of East Tennessee: one of the most important of these changes being the slow dissolution of what I call the ‘racial divide’.

We wake up in the morning, we do our daily routines from going to take that morning pee, drinking coffee and getting ready for work, but what happens if you didn’t get to wake up the next morning to do that. What if your loved ones didn’t wake up like we are used to. No one truly thinks about how such a tragedy could affect them by a simple change in a daily routine....

I was surprised that my mother wasn’t already standing on the front porch ready to drag me inside by my ear.
