For My Mother

My mother died thirty years ago from a stroke. Her life had been sad. Her marriage was a failure. My father never wished to live with us, even when I was a baby. I was born in 1939 and my sister, Danièle, in 1938. My father sold the pharmacy he was running at 17 boulevard du Temple, Paris, and he enrolled in the Army in 1944. He was assigned to the Hospital Pharmacy Department at Rabat, Morocco. My mother stayed a full year with us in Paris. She finally decided to take us to Rabat against the wish of my father. In Rabat, the three of us were living in a single room of a low-cost hotel. My father was working, living, and sleeping at the hospital. We were used to his absence.
