It was a little hard, and the color came out a little faded, but above is my favorite of our wedding portraits, for obvious reasons. It was taken 15 years ago tomorrow, the 31st of August.
What I would give to have those 15 years back.
We have had our ups and our downs ,good days and bad days, and our heartache. Somehow, Jim and I are still here, getting up every day, putting one foot in front of the other. Anyone who has been in a long term relationship knows of which I speak.
In the quiet moments though, we miss our Zosia. How aching is it to look at this picture and know she’s gone. She was the best therapist we both had; listening and loving unconditionally. Yes, I know: she’ll always “be” with us, but it’s just not the same.
Well, our Kasia is still with us. Unlike Zusher, she listens and barks, er, talks back. We go forward tomorrow hand in hand, and with four paws next to us.

I always thought your Anniversary was the beginning of September. Close enough. Happy Anniversary you two. When you were in Wissahickon you use try to get down to Cape May for your anniversary. You only have a short drive now. Have a great time celebrating. Zushie will be watching. Love you
I made the mistake of reading this to Jim as I read it aloud the first time.. of course I choked up when I read about Zush. We thank you, Jeanne, and love and miss you!
