My darling Dennis, you and I could be a poster couple for marriages. I will miss you forever. You are the most caring, giving, loving person. Also, you are the perfect gentleman, but more so, you are a gentle man. I am putting this in the present tense, because you are in my heart forever and will never be gone. If more people were like you, there would be no evil, or greed, or wars in the world. All my love to my dear husband. Louise.
