    “I’ve heard that sound near every night for twenty-odd years and never heeded it. How much she does, I mean. But this last week I’ve sat here and heard the sound of her; the sound of her chopping up food, the posher banging in the wash tub, the oven door opening and closing. She never stops. I hear it now. The sound of her loving.”
