An occasion that may never arrive.

When my grandmother died, my mom and her sisters faced the daunting task of emptying her closet.

They found clothes that my abuelita had never worn, boxes of chocolates still in their packaging, and perfumes that had not been opened.

My grandmother was from a different time. She didn't grew up with luxury or abundance.
