Alison Cronin (Mrs. James Cronin)

"I've promised Jim that I'll continue his legacy. Jim was an inspiration to everyone who knew him; he was so passionate in everything he did." --Alison Cronin

Good Mourning Widows.

Joy to you and me.

Today we welcome famous widow Alison Cronin wife of famous world-renowned primate expert honored by British royalty James Cronin to our joy-ous club. That's right. The club that nobody wants to become a member of. The club that costs one husband to joy-n.

Alison and James were residents of Great Britain for more than two decades, "where they operated the internationally renowned ape rescue center, Monkey World.

Monkey World "works with governments around the world to halt the illegal smuggling of apes out of Africa and Asia."

James died March 17, 2007. He was 55 years young.

We wish her well.

Mourning Joy:

Q: How much do pirates pay for their earrings?
A: A Buccaneer!

Mourning Quote: "Slow and steady wins the race." --Anonymous

After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen.

Open that joy-nal.

Is there something in today's entry that creates a writing spark for you? Why not write it.

Go ahead.

I dare you.

Have a joy-filled day Widows. And remember we're not alone.



  1. What happened to Jim Cronin?

    Was he ill. Please let us know as we are faithfully following their programme.



  2. Hi. I'm a widow too. My husband was Irish, from Dublin. Jim's passing means that St. Patrick's Day will have another reason to celebrate another kind of Saint.

  3. Blessings. I happened to see this just now.
    Hope all is well. Thank you for stopping by.
