"This was a year with a Keith-shaped hole in my life," says Rhoda Blecker of Belllingham, Washington. "I've kept busy. I teach at a community college, do spiritual direction, edit books, give sermons, do research, and keep my home in good shape. I see friends fairly often, and I take care of my pets Anjin and L.E. But, through it all, there's a melancholy that comes and goes, and I'm taken by surprise by certain pieces of music and things people say. What keeps me going is the conviction that God wants me here for a reason, even if I don't know what it is, and that, at last, my husband and I will be together again."
