The Little Story

 You don’t always know what ordinary things your last phone call will be about. As my sister and I packed up our father’s Florida apartment—numb with grief—I looked out the patio door to see a mourning dove sitting on the rail. I instantly realized who she was. Remembering my last phone conversation with Dad he’d cheerfully told me about “Dovy” who’d chosen his potted tomato plant to raise a family. He’d respected her privacy and both he and his Siamese cat had enjoyed her company through the glass. Dovy was coming to pay her respects.
