That Summer in Provincetown
"My cousin Daniel passed away 28 years ago. The premature death of a talented young man brought incredible guilt to the family. And no one suffered this loss more than my mother. My mother did not wail like Uncle Hai did at the funeral parlour. Yet her silence spoke louder than any sobs. On the day Daniel passed away, my mother didn't lose just a nephew. She also lost a son."
