Soon after we moved into our new apartment, I met José, the maintenance supervisor. He became a friend when we bonded over crochet. He made granny square blankets the way his mom taught him for his kids. We lost him earlier this month, and I miss him.
The apartment company is having an auction to raise money for Jose’s family on Sunday. I have spent the week making a granny square lap afghan for them to auction off. My hand is hurting but my heart feels better.
