Leti's Doves

by Olga

A couple of year's ago my sister Leti was so proud just like a Grandmother when the Dove's built their nest right outside her back door. She locked that door and refused to let anyone use it as to not disturb the Dove's, she would call daily at least 4-5 times a day to give us any update.. she was so excited.


My sister passed away of Breast cancer 9 months ago. I now have a nest right outside my front door, it was so close to our door that we actually had to move it into a bowl and tie it down on top of our light fixture. They have continued nesting day 3 now, we quietly open and close the door. The first person I thought of was my sister.. when I told my other family members their first response was, "remember Leti and her Dove's?" Yes, Leti we remember you and your Dove's..
