Dear Miss:

For many people, November 22 is a day that is remembered as the sudden and unexpected death of a President of the United States.  John Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas today 53 years ago.  But your boy remembers the day as that, and as something a little more personal.  His adopted mother died on this day back in 1989, 27 years ago.

Your boy thought about going into the details of that day, but it’s not really fodder for a public forum like this.  Besides, it’s been a long time, and though your boy in a way misses his mother every day he knows what she instilled in stays with him every day, and has helped to shape him into the boy that your boy is today.

So every November 22, at 10 am, your boy remembers that other Tuesday, and what transpired.  He observes a moment of silence no matter where he is or what he’s doing.  Remembering and in a way celebrating his mother. Your boy hopes she’s still proud of him, and what he’s become.
