Jane S's ADC
Around Thanksgiving of 2006 I had asked Jerome to send me a sign or ADC that represented the year we met - 1988. Several weeks went by and nothing. I even went looking for something myself with that year on it - tried to find Christmas ornaments, anything with that year (I realize this may sound corny to some!)
On Christmas morning I opened up a gauze bag of chocolate foil coins sent to me by my mother from a chocolate shop in Canada that I happen to like. The coins had the year "1988" embossed on them. I checked with the chocolatier to see if '88 had any significance to the company as far as an anniversary. It doesn't. I spoke with my mom to find out if she knew anything. She replied that she didn't and just randomly chose the bag not thinking about the year.
that this is an ADC. I first learned of Jerome's passing through an ADC five
months after the fact. I was completely devastated. We were each other's first
loves and our relationship ended badly. I carried regrets for many years about
the way things ended despite going on with my life. The coins not only represent
the year we met, but where we met - Canada. I live in the U.S. now, but grew up
in Canada. I hope you enjoy this ADC. It is near and dear to my heart, just like
Jerome was all those years ago. I have had many ADCs from him that I have
journaled, but the Christmas coin one is the one I really cherish.
