I had been dragging my feet in writing this column. (So what else is new?) I knew what I wanted to write about, but there seemed to be something missing to make it interesting. The morning of the day that I knew I had to get started I decided to clean one of the drawers in our bedroom. I have learned that if you want to do housecleaning and you feel overwhelmed, tackle one small task at a time. So that’s what I did that morning. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, just rearranging. When I came upon a wallet in a drawer that held mostly dresser scarves, aprons, head scarves, and shawls, I thought at first that it had belonged to my late brother, Doroteo. I thought maybe I had forgotten I had put it there. It’s made of cowhide and still in good condition. Upon taking out its contents, I discovered that it actually belonged to Henry. I felt that I was entitled to look through it, after 60 years. And there was the missing link to go with my story. . . .
