Remember that bill?

Well, here's what it led to . . .

I went to the school to drop off the books that I had found, and the secretary told me to wait because she was sure that the school counselor would want to talk to me. Joey's counselor had been so loving and supportive during Joey's withdrawal from school and his illness. Even the principal and assistant principal made a special visit to our home at one time to check on Joey. I was extremely touched by their love and support.

The counselor walked me over to the book drop-off and said that she had Joey's yearbook for me. I couldn't believe it! I had wondered if we had purchased a yearbook at the beginning of school, but I could honestly NOT remember. I was so grateful to get it.

And when I opened it, it opened right to this page and look what I found . . .



I had a good cry in the school parking lot. Boy, I miss you, Joey!
