It tells the story of her life with King and their time together before he died in Baghdad, Iraq on October 14, 2016. When she lost him, she had to raise their son Jordan by herself. George King left behind a 200-page journal with thoughts, memories, and advice for his son. These are things he wanted to make sure his son knew in case George didn’t make it home from Iraq. Canedy took these writings from King and added her memories and thoughts. Canedy tried to make a story of love and loss that was meant to be passed on to their son in the future.
