Around the home were things mundane and special. A large mounted sailfish was found in one bedroom. Below it on the wall was a photograph of the fisherman who caught it and freshly caught sailfish hanging behind him. A more remarkable find was a small envelope I discovered on the floor next to some Lps. On it was scrawled “Mom’s hair” and a hospital room number. Inside was a lock of hair. Memories pervaded the home site, from a old army knapsack hanging on the wall next to a plate with the Mogen David emblazoned on it to a pair of trunks sitting in the drive way.
