January the 10th of 1987 was a Saturday. I know, because that's when my mother took her own life. It's been 18 years since the day that changed everything. By the end of that year, I was living with the FanTek folks and starting a new life. Until about 2 years ago, 1/10 came and went without a thought, but last year, it came on me pretty hard, and today it's been no better. My mother would have been 65 today, legally able to collect social security. They say time heals all wounds.
