This is from Melissa Delbridge's memoir, FAMILY BIBLE, which is sitting by my laptop:
Her mother wept into a soaked-through Kleenex at the funeral reception and blamed it on the way Reba's face broke out. "It just worried her so bad," she sobbed. I remember Mr. Fain, the way he'd stand glitter-eyed and licking his lips when girls got on the bus during the church choir tour.
I think Melissa is my third-cousin-twice-removed on my father's side.
I hereby tag Mary, Jennifer, Button, Lola, and Debbie.
