Chapter 1

Like many women in this world today, Mary Jenkins was a lonely widow. She had been married to Harry for forty years. Harry had been a long distance truck driver for twenty-five years and was usually gone from home three days a week. Three years ago after he retired from work. He started having chest pains one afternoon. He suffered a heart attack and died before an emergency rescue unit could reach him.

It really came as a shock to Mary because Harry wasn't sick very often; he wasn't a smoker and seldom drank any alcoholic beverages. He was always a picture of good health and had taken a physical two months before he retired. The doctors told him he was in as good a shape as most men twenty years his junior.

Mary had grown accustomed to Harry being gone three days a week for twenty-five years of their married life. Now she had just gotten use to him being there all the time since his retirement. It had been a good marriage, but now he was gone and she was really alone for the first time in her life. The fact she didn't have any children to turn to only gave cause for the increase in her loneliness now. There wasn't a lot of money left over from Harry's insurance policy after the cost of the funeral, burial plot etc.

Mary couldn't afford to travel. She was on a fixed income. It was just plain boring sitting around the house all day. She was fed up with all the violence on the news and junk programs offered on television. Reality TV had become disgusting. She desperately sought ways to combat the loneliness that was now robbing her of the few years she had left.
