Jim Vavrinak
For Jim, my gentle, funny, and truly good son

My prayer is that God stays with Jim and does what is best for him. I pray that God stays with us and helps us keep our faith. I pray that this lesson produces in us some powerful positive results -and that we keep away bitterness and sadness. Please pray

We are a large family, many cousins,aunts,uncles,grandparents and various inlaws (and outlaws, as my Dad always says)-we are close-but far from perfect. My son, Jim had an abusive marriage. We worried about him, but accepted her- for his sake. Two years ago,Jim was shot- a random mugging.Jim lost an eye and had much painful rehab. He lost some memory, some unique Jim-parts of his personality are gone.His goodness and kindness are still intact! Together, we all celebrate this miracle. Yet, that was not the end of our story.No one expected, with no bad history between us,that his wife would completely cut him off from all of his family and friends.It's been over a year since anyone has seen Jim. We keep updated on him every way we know how. We write, we pass by their house. We stop and knock on the door. We have investigated legal means,but -fear that they would be too hard on Jim.We have faith that he will recover enough to find his way back.This situation is harder,more unbelievable than the shooting itself.
