Families are complicated. At least mine is. Two things are absolutely true. People make mistakes and people love each other anyway. When Joanna and James separated I was plenty mad at him and never expected to have much of an ongoing relationship with him. I also had many sweet memories of him and alot of history with him., Today James was at our house to bury Joanna's last childhood cat, Stripers. Stripers was born in James' lap back when he and Joanna wre newly in love. Many things have gone wrong and right since then, but there he was in our yard today, crying as he buried the cat who had been very much part of the family life he and Joanna built and lost. I felt respect for James and Joanna both for being able to be sweet and helpful to each other at the time of the death of their beloved kitty.
