You died on a Saturday morning and I had you placed here under our tree. And I had that house of your father’s bulldozed to the ground. Momma always said dyin’ was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn’t. Little Forrest, he’s doing just fine. About to start school again soon. I make his breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. I make sure he combs his hair and brushes his teeth every day. Teaching him how to play ping-pong. He’s really good. We fish a lot. And every night, we read a book. He’s so smart, Jenny. You’d be so proud of him. I am. He, uh, wrote a letter, and he says I can’t read it. I’m not supposed to, so I’ll just leave it here for you. Jenny, I don’t know if Momma was right or if, if it’s Lieutenant Dan. I don’t know if we each have a destiny, or if we’re all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it’s both. Maybe both is happening at the same time. I miss you, Jenny. If there’s anything you need, I won’t be far away.
In 2009, Kate Winslet provided the English-language narration for the Icelandic documentary, A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back to Autism, about a young boy named Keli Thorsteinsson who has a severe form of non-verbal autism and is unable to speak. Thorsteinsson’s mother, Margret Ericsdottir, and Winslet became very close through their work on the documentary and became close friends. In 2010, Winslet and Ericsdottir started the Golden Hat Foundation, which aims to improve the lives of people with autism. Their book The Golden Hat: Talking Back to Autism (out now) features a section of Winslet’s well-known friends taking self-portraits of themselves either wearing or somehow including the “golden” hat — one of her own fedoras. Winslet asked them to include a little quote that would express one thing they’d like to say if they couldn’t speak.
