lemme ask you a favor: if you are so inclined, please pray for her. i don't believe in prayer, but she does. and it can't hurt. thank you. i wouldn't ask if it weren't really really important. i just got her back, i don't want to lose her yet.
then, on the way home, as you probably surmised from the picture, we stopped by Kasey's memorial tree. i stood there and wept and cleaned off the plaque. it was on the other side of the park from my parent's house. they could see if they were looking, but i doubt they look. and it's near the opposite entrance to the park than they use, so it's pretty safe.
it's a nice tree, i don't know what kind. it's all naked due to the winter. it's by some other trees, just off the path.
