The man who killed my mom is dead

I don’t really want anyone to be able to imagine. She put his flag from his casket next to the one he stole from my brother’s arms before our mom was even buried in the ground just after the gun salut. Like she knows he stole that then pretended not to have it till the day he died but only because I told her. She doesn’t know she placed our mother’s murderer’s flag next to our mother and is now respecting them at the same time.

I didn’t tell her why but I mentioned she may not want to tell our mom’s dad or our shared brother that she did that. I didn’t tell her why.

She doesn’t understand why he is hated/reviled. I wouldn’t even be surprised if she didn’t realize I wasn’t the only one who hated him for the shit he did.
