In Memoriam and Happy Birthday Mary Hillier, "Almost a May Queen!"
To my friend, Mary, who always said she was almost a May Queen. Her birthday was today, and she would have been 95 years old or so. But, age never mattered to us. She and I wrote each other about two letters per month for 14 years. I have all of them; when I'm really down, I like to reread them. She was a mulitalented person who know dolls and art, law, literature, writing, journalism, and history. She loved Elvis, and she played soccer into her sixties. I miss her more and more as the years go by. I hope she is with my mother, somewhere, talking about dolls, and collecting, and maybe a little about me. For everyone who has loved and lost someone they love, I write this blog for you.
