It must be so cool to have such an amazing mother, Julie! I can hardly imagine what it's like to put together so many pieces of her existence after she passed.

And the hummingbird story... you know it happened to me the same thing when my father-in-law, a man who loved animals and birds sooo much, passed away? The first time we went to his house afterward, a hummingbird in a willow tree kept chirping for like half an hour while we were there. Such an intense and strange moment...
