Cristina no longer uses her wallet for all her important stuff. Her son has taken over all of that for her and keeps it safe. Her wallet is now something she goes through, taking things out of and putting them back to keep her busy. Inside her wallet are old I.D. cards of herself and her husband’s, who is no longer with her. He passed away in 2012 from leukemia with mantle cell lymphoma. In 2012 she was still aware enough to know her husband was dying. Now, she can no longer speak words or remember his name. However, when she sees a photo of him, she knows it’s her husband. Maybe it’s something in her brain that won’t let her forget as if it’s embedded in her heart and soul. We may not understand why she still knows who he is but she does.
