How did it happen that 11 month has slipped by in the blink of an eye? Seems like yesterday. Although I know that I am coping much better, I can still feel the pain I felt immediately upon hearing the news and that hole in my heart is still always will be. I find myself getting rather tense thinking about April 11, 2009, it's certainly not a day that I want to be alone. I have been contacting many of Jim's friends and hopefully we can all be together that day. There will be 'Jim stories' to share and the return of the beautiful stepping stones to Jim's garden. I do look forward to seeing the plants emerge in the garden, their smiling, warm faces welcoming in the new Spring. I wish dearly that Jim could be here to see it, too; but then, I think he will be.

Love, Joanne
