So this week has been pretty hard for me because today it’s been exactly 4 years since my mom died.  We were really close and I think about her all the time.  I don’t usually talk about personal things (except lamenting my lack of mozzarella sticks) on this blog, but I thought that I would share this graphic essay I made about her for a creative nonfiction class in college.  Beware, it’s kind of weepy.
