PRE-MARTIAL LAW BOX OF LOVE MAILED TO MY GRANDDAUGHTER EMILY

When my daughter (also named Emily) was 14 and we were moving (again), she said “Mom, I’m going to have your tombstone engraved “SHE WAS A GOOD PACKER”.
Because the last time I mailed a package to my granddaughter, my son refused to accept it, I mailed this one to my daughter’s address.
On the front it says “SHE WAS A GOOD PACKER”.
I’m not dead yet.
I’m fighting for their souls – and yours, if you are reading this.
Against all odds and defying convention, without speaking Hindi I shopped for fabric, borrowed clothing and created patterns and hand-stitched this Punjabi suit with two layers of cotton lawn for the top and the Alibaba gypsy harem pants. It took weeks, in a room with no heat, no windows, where I could see my breath.
As I shopped I bought Emily things.
I love you Emily. I love you all.
