The Story begins
The story begins with the account of Paddy's death and burial. One night about a week after I had the idea to write Mary's story, I couldn't sleep. Arden had been on a long business trip and had just returned home. Nick and he were asleep and I was restless. It was after midnight and I had the thought, what would Mary have felt like the night after Paddy's burial. The house would be quiet like my house was and loved ones would be asleep. I went to my computer and just began writing. It was really incredible. I wept as I wrote. It took me a few days to share the account with anyone and I was amazed, they wept too. That is when I thought, I could do this. Now after four years of effort, the book is finished. I hope that you enjoy it.
