4 girls in a vehicle. One is meeting two of the girls for the first time.

Two have lost their moms, one has lost their dad, one has a changed dad.

One girl asks the other girl how her dad passed away. Cancer. One girl confirms that’s how her mom died too.

One girl asks me how my mom died again? I began to answer and my phone rings. I see it’s Home calling. I say, “Just hang on, I gotta get this.”

“Hello?” “Mommy!!”, says Arrine in her sweet, sweet voice. “Mommy! Good night.” Arrine and I have a few more exchanges then I hang up. And look at the girl and say, “Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease”.

“I’ve heard of that,” she replied.
