bonus post, tribute #22 (double length) - Mrs Nguyễn

dressed chic and classy, moved to Canada to live near her grandkids. had trouble
hearing, problems with cataracts, culture shock, un-roled from community
pillar, recognized widely by face, name for generosity, wealth

to being a short old one of them who don't speak English real good

she brought me a mango which I motioned to bite. her eyebrows flipped
from don't you sassy me to the girl's a simpleton
deftly cut sections and fed them to me like an infant.
