A couple of years ago, my mom died of cancer. And if you know anything about my mom, she was the coolest. She had a great sense of humor and just a wonderful mom. You couldn't ask for somebody better. Very encouraging, a real champion of mine, and just supportive non-stop. So after she passed on, I would go to play the delete game once in awhile, and I would hit the M's and there she was right there, M-O-M. And guess what I couldn't do? I couldn't delete it. So I kept it for the last couple years, you know. Kept it in there and from time to time I'd scroll through and just stare at it. And then recently I was like 'You know what? It's time to move on'. I'd done the grieving and the healing and everything. So I looked at it, kinda a smile on a face. I was ready to go. And then I thought, just for old time's sake, you know, cause I called it so many times, I'm gonna call it one last time for good luck. You know, it just felt right. And then I was just about to hit send and then I thought: 'What if she f**king answers?'. 'This is Donna, guess who's in Cabo?'. 'What the f**k Ma, you said you died of cancer! Is Dad dead?'. 'Yeah, your Dad did die of cancer, actually. I'm kidding, he's right here. George, say hi'.
