February 10, 2012

Our neighbor dropped off some beautiful luminarias today. Wow, and she said they are not crafty or creative. They are beautiful!

Not looking forward to tomorrow. It will be difficult to view Kathryn when my head and heart still are telling me it isn’t real. This will make it real. We (Richard and is Girlfriend Katherine) finished the slide show for tomorrow.

I worked on Kathryn’s room and still can’t find some things. I cleaned out under the stairs and still can’t find things. I’ve come across lots of wonderful things that Kathryn has drawn or written. My heart breaks when I read her writings. I also came across a letter I wrote for her in 2007. It was for her to find when I died so she would know how much I loved her.

So, pray for our strength. I will need it for tomorrow. Today was a tough one.

Good Night
