    I’ve always heard the expression, the ‘greater the love, the deeper the grief’. Not only have I heard it, I now see it, feel it, and know it.
    My gratitude to you and your forever bride for a beautiful childhood memory, 67 years ago, when I was one of two flower girls in your wedding. It left an indelible mark on an eight year old child’s heart. 💕
