The chronological account of her life ends with a description of her first job after college. Rather than continue chronologically, Asho then embarked on a series of aMemory Lettersa to her late husband, Lyle Craine.

They include her account of Lyleas stroke in 1988 and the four and one half years he spent in a nursing home. The appendix to the first section contains three short autobiographical summaries of her life. The second section of the book contains character sketches of members of Ashoas family and close friends, written for various occasions. Following her move to Connecticut in 2004, Asho turned to writing poetry.
