A Mother Emails Her Daughters by Robert Laughlin

Your father and I are having Christmas alone for the first time since any of you were born. Whenever you want us to visit you in the hereafter, remember we have a prior commitment to your husband's parents or can't afford the ectoplasm to go from our cloud to yours.

Robert Laughlin lives in Chico, California. He is the creator of the Micro Award (www.microaward.com), an annual competition for previously published flash fiction. Two of his short stories are MWA Notable Stories, and his first novel, Vow of Silence, is available from Trytium. His author website is at www.robertlaughlin-fictionwriter.com.
