Tiny Caskets In The Snow

January 20, 2014
   Coming to a point in the story of The 66 Kid that I've been avoiding for some time. How do you write about something that happened in your family that no one wants to talk about? Never easy, but in my case I decided to take a little different route. Went home for lunch and finished a little painting I call "Tiny Caskets In The Snow."

"Tiny Caskets In The Snow"

   My mother lost two girls in Iowa and they are buried at Linden Cemetery southwest of Thompson, Iowa. The two events happened about a year apart but in my memory they are one.

"Tiny caskets in the snow. Who were those little girls we'll never know?"
