Good Mourning, Everyone!
Joy to you and me.
Today I write from Nantucket. As I sit at a desk in front of a window with a view of Centre Street, and my fingers tippy-tap the desktop keyboard, outside a cold wind bends leafless oaks and elms that line the red-bricked sidewalks.
Combing the pages of "The Inquirer and Mirror," Nantucket's local weekly newspaper, I read that in 1857, 150 years ago, "Our friend, Capt. George Palmer, has raised the banner hog of the season weighing 568 pounds and measuring 5 feet, 10 inches long."
Today we welcome into the club nobody wants to joy-n, famous widow, Marian McKenzie Peacock, wife of famous husband, George Emmons Peacock.
Mrs. Peacock joy-ned our merry club on Friday, October 26. She has their son Donald, his wife, Nancy, and their son, Alexander Robert, in addition to all of Newmarket, NH, to support her through the grief process.
To Mrs. Peacock, Griefcase extends sincerest condolences and wishes mourning joy all the days of your life.
After we remember Him, why not fingerhug your pen. Open what I lovingly refer to as a joy-nal, and write something.
I dare you.
