FINDING JOY

Kara Kavensky never imagined the degree to which Bob Albright, a nonagenarian WWII Veteran she interviewed for a cover story, would transformationally impact her life.

Bob, a widower, openly shared his war adventures as a photographer with the US ARMY, providing ample material for his human interest story. Bob was kind, happy, and possessed a wonderful sense of humor. However, when Kara returned a week later, Bob was somber and quiet. On this visit, Bob shared with Kara that he had missed out on marrying the love of his life — he didn’t know if she was dead or alive, but he needed to find her and ask for forgiveness.

Kara asked Bob, “What did you do?”

He replied, “I never asked her to marry me.”

Bob had not spoken of this woman in 67 years.

Her name is Joy.

This quest changed the trajectory of Kara’s life — and it’s all true.

RECORD SCRATCH

Kara’s follow-up memoir.

When something unexpected happens in our lives, just like in the movies, everyone and everything seems to freeze, and the soundtrack playing in the background stops abruptly with the sound of a needle across vinyl.

A record scratch.

Kara’s record scratch moment was hearing the news that her youngest child, Jake, age 16, died in a tragic car accident.

Nothing will ever be the same.
