One year ago.
It was our Spark a Smile
card making get together.
No one showed up but Janelle and I.
We still made cards and chatted.
Her dad called her a couple of times.
Just checking on her.
Janelle and I talked about the fact that her dad and her husband were going hunting early the next morning.
They had a great time.
The next afternoon I got a call.
There was a terrible accident.
Their truck was hit by a train.
I couldn't believe it.
It had to be a mistake.
Her dad was killed instantly.
Her husband was thrown from the truck.
It was a long recovery.
It's hard to believe it's been a year. I feel priviledged to have been there when Janelle got those last calls. I still have a hard time believing Dr. Gene is gone. Tomorrow friends and family will get together to remember. And to celebrate getting through this first year. We miss you Dr. Gene.
