A Place To Play
By JE Lillie
Momma died in April. The whole village came out for the funeral. She was the Pastor’s wife after all.
The whispers started that day.
“Poor man. Left a widower at such a young age and with two daughters. How’s he going to raise them?”
Daddy did just fine. Some days he would pack up our tea set and bring us to the church with him.
While he worked on his sermon we were shuffled out to the graveyard alongside the church.
He would wink at us and say, “Go see if mommy wants to play tea party.”
She always did.
