Oh, this is sad. A Jim whose life went on at DM without Pam. a tree too weary to grow toward the sun. Too rooted to die
I'm so happy this won't be his fate. Love this, and hope you're doing well!
Author's Response: Thanks, Lis, I am. Like you, I doubt the show's writers will put Jim through this!

This was so beautifully sad, especially this part: "Looming over her desk, a tree too weary to grow toward the sun. Too rooted to die."
As I read it the second time it reminded me of visits with my mother who is in a nursing home with Alz. Sometimes I can see past her eyes, too, to the dark booth behind and I'm able to see my mother as she was.
(not saying that your Jim had Alz., just what it reminded me of...)
Author's Response: Thank you, Karen, and thanks for sharing something so personal. I hope you're able to have quality time with your mother. :)
