Our neighbor Tomi's mother died a few days ago and Annie and I talked about it as we prepared food to bring to her.
Me: "Why do you think it's good to make food for someone whose mother just died?"
Annie: "I think it's good because Tomi has people who care for her like her husband and her daughter, and she also had her mother who cared for her. But now her mother is gone so Tomi must feel like there's one less person who cares for her. When we make food for her and her family, it's like we're caring for her and telling her that we can fill that space."
