.....the first birthday without his Dad. The first pictures are from playing around with the football in our backyard the day of Ken's funeral. The other shots are from Homecoming last year. He refused to smile for me, but eventually gave me some .

So what would you do with these very large cardboard spools??? They were free and I picked up a few. I wanted more , but they would take up so much space. And while picking them out I made a new friend. Hello Kim!

In the Orthodox faith, there are memorial services for those who have passed. 9 days, 40 days, 1 year, on their day of death, or their birthdays...so this weekend marked the 40 days for Ken's passing.
Ken had gotten rid of hematuria(70 days of blood in the urine), and 2 colds (he never let anything get on his chest, ever, since I'd known him),and was starting to gain weight, ounce by ounce (we could not weigh him, but we could see the indentations in his forehead from the brain surgery in 2006, fill in), and so a good friend recommended trying Marinol (medicated marih-a), to increase his appetite. I thought that was worth a try.
