Congrats on the win, Eve. In the last line, however, do you mean "leaving" or "living" as you have it here?

Eve, this is such a sad Christmas memory. Fell sad for all. Have you, perchance, made a painting of your sister and son? Love, Balveen

Hello, Jan, this is a true story. My sister came up to stay with me to move away from her husband and drugs. Then one evening two days before the holidays she had an aneurism in the brain that killed her instantly. Of course her husband came up and took her one year old son back with him. The husband was much divested because he loved her very much, they dated all through high school, but he is the one that introduced her to the drugs.
