Where The Popsicles Are-134

It has been said that we need just three things in life: Something to do, Something to look forward to And someone to love.

In the winter of 2007-08, Joanie and I had all three.

There was little doubt that we had something to do. Not only did she have the job of helping John get reelected, but she had the battle of her life to conduct on a daily basis. My job was to be sure she got everything she needed for her battle.

We had something to look forward to, that the darkness of long, cold winter nights would give way to brighter, warmer spring days, when life begins anew.

And, we each had someone to love.

In the winter of 2007-08, despite the clouds, we didn’t need anything else.


About Bob Kallberg

Retired reporter. Concentrating now on recounting Joanie's 12 year battle with cancer, a battle she waged with extreme courage, determination and an indomitable spirit, that, for me, serves as an example.
