That's how it is today. Warm memories of what was, keeping alive the love that lead to so much happiness. As I wrote to a friend today, I'm not real sure yet about what may be next for me, I only know that there are things remaining for me to do. It would absolutely be so much easier and more fun with Gwen at my side. (I wonder how many times I've used the phrase "with Gwen at my side" since she died. She really was my pal; my sidekick for a lot of ventures and adventures, even a few misadventures.)
As I'm writing this I'm reminded of what a strong, self-directed person Gwen was. Whatever she set out to accomplish in life she succeeded in doing. Mustn't forget what a great example she set not only in dealing with chronic illness, but also in doing whatever she put her mind to.
A big thing I'm grateful for, Dear, is that one of the things you knew you wanted was me. You were so cute about it too.
