When Double Becomes Single. . .continued

Sharon almost cried when she met her grandchildren. She said, “Your grandfather said I was his pocket wife, petite but very strong. You both have an athletic look. Do you like sports?”

James face broke into a grin and said, “Both of us are terrific in tennis and Lori is way good in gymnastics. For an eleven and a half year old girl, she’s just about perfect.”

His little sister punched him in the arm and said, “Jimmers, I’m just okay so far.” “Yeah right, I play the guitar and sax and we haven’t been here very long because…and this…” “So what happened at home? Your parents knew I wanted to see both of you and you are safe here.”They shook their heads without saying a word and Sharon thought they are damaged but she’d fix it, by God she’d fix it.

“Do you like dogs?” James said, “Oh yeah we always wanted a dog but they said no.” Sharon said, “we took in rescue dogs a few years ago and never regretted it.”

“Please, grandmother, please rescue us and we promise you’ll never be sorry because James and I will make you proud.
