I never really fully cried, but I did loose a lot of sleep after my grandparents death. My mother was worried for a while because I would not sleep and my health was beginning to diminish. She ended up taking me to the doctor and they declared that I was suffering from insomnia. There was no explanation, but I knew that I was still grieving my grandparents, it was the only way that I could; since no one would know that I would cry in the middle of the night. About a couple of months later, everything was beginning to go back to normal, I still do not have the courage to speak about my grandmother or grandfather without shedding a tear.

She needed something warm to wear while she was riding the bus to school. I provided her that warmth and protection from the bitter Wisconsin winter weather. She wore me so often that year that I started to fade and the velvety softness on my insides turned coarse after many washings. We were the best of buds and went everywhere together.
