OK… that was odd…

I go to change into barn clothes to feed the horses.  I take my cell phone out of my pocket and notice there is a name on the screen.

John Smith

The last phone call I got was from Steve.  The last phone call I made was to Shannon.  I haven’t checked voice mail for over a day.  I also had not used the house phone to call my cell.

I click on details.


I rack my brain trying to remember if there was any significance of the date.  I can’t think of anything.  That was before Stage IV.  John and I really didn’t call each other often.  Who knows.


Another sign.

I smile and tell John that I love him.

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
