On Not Sleeping with Paper Bags

Dear John,

Jen and Elyssa are here, tired but fine. Three generations of women in one house - too much fun, definitely for Jethro! He's ecstatic and exhausted.

Goshen's Relay for Life was yesterday. Brandy was there - she hadn't planned to go, but said she just felt like she was supposed to. When she went inside, the first thing she saw was the paper bag with your name and dates on it. She got to light the illuminator in it, and brought it to me at church this morning. I hugged it like it was you - hope you don't mind! I'm so glad to have it. I had no idea they did that. It's like a little paper headstone and it makes me a little teary, but it's so good to see you remembered and honored publicly.

I'm off to bed - I promise I won't sleep with the paper bag. Or Bert the Hippo. Just Jethro!

I love you so much,
Joan.
