Fifteen years ago today my loving and faithful Herb and I got married.
We were unable to celebrate together but these words greeted me (via email) upon my awakening:
15th Anniversary, Tammie! According to traditions, the 15th wedding
anniversary is Crystal. I must admit I just looked that up. You got
wool. But as far as I know, there are 364 days left...
one could have made my life better than you. no one. You are my
special gift. any gift I can ever afford will pale in comparison to the
warm hue that is your gift.
funny you are pale in skin and emit such a richness that make me look pale.
you read this, know that I am kissing you in my mind. know that if I
were to be taken from existence and could have the ability, my last
conscious focused thought will/would be of your face and name, Tammie."
