TERRY WOSTER: Can you talk, or are you in the basement?
It was the kind of news that used to prompt a late-evening call from my mom.
She’s been gone for nine years now, and she and I didn’t talk on the telephone often. I’d stop to see her for a bit if I traveled to her town, but neither of us was particularly comfortable on the phone. Even so, certain events were so amazing or frightening that my mom would grab the phone and give a call.
