My mother, Patricia McCallum Pickens, died last Wednesday, January 14. Don’t really feel like doing a long, sappy post just yet.
I’ll just say a few things:
1. She was a great person. I would probably say that even if it wasn’t true, but it is. The outpouring of support has been crazy (good).
2. For me, hugging her was different than hugging anyone else in the world.
