A bittersweet day

Today would have been our 43rd wedding anniversary – it still IS our 43rd wedding anniversary. I miss Cedric every minute of every hour of every day. I would have been showered with gifts. He was always generous, and not just for anniversaries. I would find lotions and potions and creams and candles in strategic and non-strategic spots, sometimes not finding the gift for several days, which amused him no end. He has, however, left me with the most precious gift of all – his family: my dear daughter-in-law, Virginia, her daughter, Rachel, and granddaughter, Iyla, who all live in England; and his granddaughter, Bethany, and her son, Gethin, who live in Wales. What gifts he bequeathed me! Thank you, my darling – these are the gifts that will keep on giving.

  1. What a beautiful photo of the two of you. 43 years?! Wow! You don’t hear that as often anymore. Cedric’s gift of family is wonderful for you. But, his gift to his family (your family) is YOU! They are so lucky to have you in their lives. Happy Anniversary! Celebrating love has no expiration date.
