One Happy Family

By Anneliese

I did have a photo of my dad on my bedside but mum didn’t feel comfortable with it after a few weeks so she asked me if I could put it away and I said if it was what she wanted then yeah. I don’t know where it is.  I think maybe my mum threw it away.  I wish I still had it.
