‘Home is where your stuff is’
SUNDAY, April 25 – There is a gold-colored metal plate attached to the front door by a single screw, but glued more firmly than I expected.

Not any more. Just removed. One firm blow with the screwdriver and it’s lying on the table in front of me. Graceful lettering. Spelling correctly. I had double-checked that in June 2008 when I ordered the nameplate at the hardware store.
I wanted to make sure that it would be on the door when the boys arrived from London: proof that this was their new home. But Jennifer’s motto was ‘home is where your stuff is’. To which I would add: But, make sure your name’s on everything.
By removing the nameplate, we lost Jennifer once again.
