Today is my 41st anniversary with Melanie. We got to renew our vows at church last Valentine’s Day. The next day Melanie got word that her mother had begun her final illness. Melanie chose to stay by my side rather than go to Michigan for her mother’s eventual funeral two weeks later. Because when you marry, you leave all others and cleave to your spouse. It has been a difficult year. Thank you, Melanie, for going through it with me. I do love you more than… ever.
