An excerpt from Chapter 18, ON PARTNERSHIP:
We lived in a state of compassion and laughed and cried with each other. Sharing our joy and sorrow made our life exquisite. Justin knew my heart and treated it with the utmost tenderness, as I did his. We each respected the path the other was on and held a flashlight to light the way.

Excerpts from Chapter 7, FOLK MUSIC & THE MORNING AFTER:
A long evening of strumming and singing defined the first time Brother Justin and I met. Strumming and singing continued on through our years together….Justin presented me with a stunning gift: a banjo he had made for me over the summer. The banjo sounded sweet and felt natural in my hands. It would be a perfect remembrance, a symbol of our love of music and for each other.

Special Moments – Perfectly Paired with Bonny’s Vineyard Cabernet
An excerpt from Chapter 22, Widow’s Club:
Grief takes us over and slams us onto the floor over and over again. Ultimately, it can tenderize us and soften us into wiser, more open hearted souls. But knowing that doesn’t make the process any shorter or any less agonizing….When, in an instant, the center of life is gone, a new meaning, a new purpose must be found for vibrancy to return.
