We met Anastasia through my friend Sheila
Sheila didn’t go to church but she
knew priests maybe from Ireland they were all from Ireland
every single summer she’d come over talk about her husband
big big family coming from Ireland at 17 cleaning houses making a life
her husband Dennis died on Easter Sunday 89th birthday in hospice in Florida
Anastasia’s sister Bridey called to tell us Dennis died and I called Anastasia
to say we were sorry she said one of her happiest days
in her long life was when Ziggy a neighbor took us in his truck
to Middleburgh New York for vegetables and ice cream.
Do you remember what Ziggy said after we ate the ice cream?
Now Let’s Get Some Pie.
