jfkjean Well my darling, Marie Lourdes Geneus, we've reached twenty years today. It's been a long and quite the strange trip without you. This time of the year is never easy. You gave me life, my beautiful dark skin, my love for photographs. Your spirit is with me wherever I've traveled.
One of her many great traits is that she'd show you her teeth within five seconds of talking with her, she loved to smile that much. You couldn't help but to join her. On top of that, she was photogenic, didn't have a bad angle.
Many memories drifted away in all those years. One that sticks out most is when you mentioned you liking the video and / or song to "Can It Be All So Simple" by the Wu-Tang Clan, the subject of my latest obsession at the time. Right at the moment, it meant the world to me the my mother approved of something I loved so much. It was like "whoa, how cool is Mummy?!" Obviously, no one can predict how things would have turned out if you were still here. As a result of your death, I made a few decisions nearly a decade later that molded me into the man I am today.
With love,

JEJ xx

jfkjean Andree Geneus. Beginning of journey: 3.1.29. End of journey: 8.18.14. Seamstress during her productive years in Port Au Prince, Haiti. Moved to Brooklyn in the early 70's with her husband and 6 crazy kids to begin a new chapter in this city. Officially became a U.S. citizen in 1995. I inherited her love for garment construction, the family nose and my respect for women, not to mention her stubbornness. Sadly, I did not inherent the freckles.
With Mum's anniversary quickly approaching, it hadn't gotten easier for you to cope with the loss of your first born, even after 20 years. I regret that we couldn't celebrate her life together more often. ....But you did have the gift of 12 grand kids and 4 great grand kids that were equally as crazy that you got to enjoy during your twilight years. They'll never forget your quick wit, stern but warm personality, even in your final hours.
Stayed with you a little while last night, assuming when I kissed you on the forehead like I always do as you slept peacefully, that I'd see you the following evening. At least we got to give you a proper adieu. Say hello to Mum for me. With love, JEJ.
