The Easter Bunny Is Real!!!

That’s right gang. The Easter Bunny is REAL and I can PROVE IT.

How you ask? Well, the proof came today.

Packing Peanuts

Look!!! It brought me peanuts . . .

What? You want more proof?

How about this . . .

Easter Bunny Surprise Opener

Delicious cookies . . . tasty M&Ms . . . and decadent chocolates . . .

That not enough proof for you?  

How about this . . .

Mercury Glass Piggy Bank

That floppy-eared captain of confection also brought me a pig.

Oh . . . and not just any pig my friends, but a like-no-other, totally-freaking-cool, be-still-my-heart, I-can’t-believe-it’s-real, LIME GREEN MERCURY GLASS PIG. This glamorously green, magically metallic and preciously petite porker . . . ROCKS!!!

Open Last, Easter card

That clever cotton-tailed candy crusader also brought me scrumptious Easter eggs and a very special and emotional surprise.

Bill and Jana on his last visit.

This egg stashing Ambassador of Spring gave me a true Easter surprise overflowing with love and lots of emotion. The benevolent bunny sent me the last photos ever taken of Bill. Not only that, it even went the extra hop to frame one of these precious photos especially for me. That’s Bill using the Magic Camera.

I will remember this day forever, because it’s not every day that you find out who the Easter Bunny is.

So, do you wanna know what the Easter Bunny looks like.

Yeah, I figured you did.


This is Bill’s sister, Jana, my very own Easter Bunny.

Yeah, I’m very lucky—and blessed—aren’t I?

Happy Easter!

      Hey Jayardi, Oh, you are so right. I will savor each treat and morsel of love packed into this wonderful package.

      Gotta love that bunny.

    Tom, thanks so much for sharing pictures of Bill. I always wondered what your “other half” looked like. I know Jana’s surprise gift was just priceless for you. Happy bunny day!

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Hi Pat, You are very welcome. It is my pleasure to share him with you. Bill was a constant supporter of whatever I was involved in, but was virtually invisible to most people I interacted with.

      I’m sure many of my Peeps and co-workers thought he was my imaginary friend, because they never saw him.

      Yes, Jana’s gift is priceless in ways that I can hardly describe. Thank goodness Bill wasn’t a figment of my imagination or I would have missed having Jana in my life.

      Thanks for dropping by and sharing my Easter surprise.

      Happy Easter to you!

    Wow. A serious lump in my throat! Happy Easter, Tom. Love ya and miss ya- Amy

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Hi Amy, Oh yes, the Easter Bunny brought quite a box of love. I am blessed to have received such a gift.

      Gifts like this always create tears. That’s all part of the package and I wouldn’t change a thing.

      Each tear I shed is a reminder of the love and joy I shared with an amazing person and I’d sign up to do it all over again—even if the outcome remained the same.

      I am blessed in ways that I am only beginning to fully understand and none of that would be possible without Bill.

      It’s always nice to hear from you. I can easily hear your voice as read your comment. It’s as comforting to me as I know it was for Bill.

      Happy Easter to you and your wonderful family. xxxooo 🙂

    Hi Tom, I love Jana and I don’t even know her! Thanks for sharing your lovely gift. If Bill was anything like Jana, you have been truly blessed.


    P.S. Just curious. What are the small white crosses against the fence in the backgroundf?

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Hi Judy! Well, if you love Jana now, you are really gonna love her when you actually meet.

      She is so wonderful, sweet and kind, but has absolutely no clue about how amazing she is. The cool thing about our relationship is that I know how amazing she is, so I’m gonna show her. I can hardly wait!

      Bill and Jana are a lot alike. Bill was very thoughtful and loved to make people happy and Jana is exactly the same way. She does and says a lot of things that Bill did, which is wonderful to see and hear. Yep, they are definitely related—no doubt about it.

      Happy Easter to you!!! xxxooo 🙂

      Regarding the crosses: Oh, those are crosses for the family pets. Bill’s mom creates a little memorial cross for each of the fur babies after they transition.

    Tom, that Jana is a jewel! What a loving person she is! You are so lucky to have her in your life! I think I’m a bit jealous! ;-D I definitely know I am where that lime green pig is concerned! What a COOL pig!!!!!! And it’s not even purple and I’m jealous!!! LOL! Have a glorious Easter, my dear friend! Muah!

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Hi Deb, You are so sweet and funny. I get a smile on my face every time I read one of your comments. It’s almost like having your sitting right next to me.

      Yes, I’m very lucky to have Jana in my life. She is amazing in so many ways, it’s hard to pick just one. When it concerns her, I am more than lucky. I am blessed.

      I KNOW!!! That pig ROCKS!!! It is so adorable and full of personality I can hardly stand it. I just want to sit and stare at it, because it makes me so happy.

      It is definitely a welcome addition to my menagerie.

      Thank you. I hope you have a perfectly purple Easter as well.

      xxxooo 🙂

  7. Analisa Says:

    Just a wonderful person is your Jana. We all need a little Jana in our lives. God bless her.

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Hi Analisa, I couldn’t agree more. It would be nice if everyone had a Jana or could be a Jana in someone’s life.

      I am actually very fortunate. I have numerous Jana’s that love and care for my wellbeing. I am a very lucky man.

      Bless you to Analisa and Happy Easter!

  8. fiberdoodles Says:

    I think by far, you received the golden prize egg! Jana’s loving spirit is so sweet. However Tom, you are pretty sweet and special yourself! Have a wonderful Easter!!


    • Tom Russell Says:

      Hey there, Yep, it was a pretty special Easter surprise. Jana really knows how to fill a box with love. You are so kind. I could just hug you if you were closer. Since I can’t here’s one (((hug))) to tide you over until I see you this summer.

      Hope you have a gloriously Happy Easter!!!

  9. jdmurray2000 Says:

    Happy Easter Tom, you are one loved man who is very blessed with family and good friends. I sure wish you lived next door and Jana as well.

    • Tom Russell Says:

      Happy Easter!!! Yes, I am blessed beyond my wildest dreams. Each day I feel and see the love from those I care about. I am fortunate. I get to see the power of love and the miracles it brings each and every day. As much as I witness, I am in blown away by the power of love.

      I think we’d all have a great time living near each other. How could we not? Even though we are not physically close, there is great love for you.

      Happy Easter! xxxooo 🙂
