Well, it has been three weeks today that Jim passed away. They have been the longest of my life. I thought having him in prison was hard, it was a walk in the park compared to this. We set up a website for him, to www.james-burke.last-memories.com, and I must go to it at least 10 times a day. Just to see his face and hear all the things that people say about him. We only had 5 years together, so I am learning new things about him all the time. I am going to my first prison reform gathering next week. I am going to do whatever I can to help other families so they do not have to go through what we did. I just want to thank all who prayed and supported us during this time. At times when I felt alone, I could always turn to you and you were there for me. Whenever any of you feel alone while your loved one is in prison, remember that you still have them and be grateful for that.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
