So sorry for my absence!
Last Thursday we made an
unexpected trip to Neepawa, Manitoba
where I entered the
'Triangle of No WIFI"
and very slow internet connection! :(
I originally posted about my Great Aunt and Uncle
and how, after over 60 years of marriage,
they still held on to hands,
had twinkles in their eyes when they talked about each other,
and had an unwavering devotion to each other.
Sadly, my Aunt (83) passed away
from a long battle with cancer on New Year's Day,
leaving my Uncle (90) after 63 years of wedded bliss.
When asked what makes for a long and happy marriage,
their reply was always the same...
"Always hang on to hands...especially in the dark."
Now coffee for two
has become coffee for one.
Half of his heart is missing.
But the love...
oh the love...
will live on in their families hearts forever...
A marriage to aspire to.
