Two years ago, my father-in-law was diagnosed with stage-four intestinal cancer. We had always been close to his family and
although we lived far away, my husband or our entire family was able to make the trip from Seattle, to Houston to be with
his father every couple of months during his illness.
The stockings were "hung by the chimney with care," but what to fill them with? Since our four children grew up and got married,

Danelle is my step daughter, the second of five daughters. For nine long years she was kept out of my life and my husband's
(her father's) life due to a bitter divorce. Her 14th birthday was the last one we spent with her. On her 15th birthday we
bought her a doll, even though we couldn't give it to her. I kept it in my closet for those nine years.
