When I opened the box, I nearly fainted! I could not believe that 1) he was asking me to marry him and 2) he had chosen these gorgeous rings! You must remember that I was only 16 at the time. I was so in love with him and so captivated by his love. To think that he felt the same about me was pure joy.
It's been 35 years and, even though he is now with our Lord, I love him more than I could have even imagined then. When he went home, I thought I would not be able to bear the pain. However, the Lord has been so faithful to me and so merciful. He has filled the void left in my heart and my soul with wonderful memories of our life together and with His love.
I love you, my baby. I have for so long and I will continue to do so for all eternity.
