D: A Day to Remember April 4, 1975

This month I am participating in the April 2012 Blogging From A-Z Challenge. I will be blogging every day this month with Sundays off (except for April 1) using a letter of the alphabet in order from A through Z. So, Basically, beginning with April 1, my topic will be themed on something with the letterA, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until I finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letter Z.

A Day to Remember
April 4, 1975
  I had gotten a good night's sleep and was awakened, at the time I usually would wake up - at around 6:30, by a twinge of pain.  Almost as if someone where gently shaking me, telling me it was time to wake up.  But that was to be expected.  He was always quiet and polite, not wanting to cause a raucous.
The pains were the perfect strength and duration, allowing us the right amount time to get to our destination.  But that was to be expected.  He was always on time.
At 2:00 that afternoon, I met him for the first time.  When they placed him in my arms, he felt solid and strong. But that was to be expected because he remained strong always.
He is and always will be my Joey.
