You were, and will always remain, "the love of my life"... and there is no one I'd rather be with tonight, tomorrow (Christmas Day), or any other day, than you. As you said in one of your little notes while in Italy, summer 2013, "We have been thru a lot together, pretty amazing I think." How true, yet understatedly prophetic, that seems now... and how I long to recapture our love and times together. The thought that you are no longer "here", is one that I can but barely accept, if at all, yet the Serenity Prayer that we spoke so many times stands out, now, in a way that is so hauntingly special: "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change... the courage to change the things I can... and the wisdom to know the difference.""Merry Christmas", Sweetheart. I love you so.Your Preston June 26, 2023 I am without adequate words. The love of my life is gone, in the twinkling of an eye.

Wonderful times remembered so tenderly, now. June 26, 2023 Laura in Slovenia or Italy, late June, 2013.
