One year ago, this is what my husband said...

My dearest Lynn, today is a very special day and you are a
special woman. 

I'll never forget our first exchange of messages nor the first time we met in person. I can still see you walking down the hallway at the airport with your hair in pigtails wearing a jean skirt and boots. 

After we had seen each other a few times we started talking about you moving to Richmond but instead here I am. I came charging into your life like a bull in a China shop.

The day I was diagnosed with ALS you made a decision that was awe inspiring. We have been dealt a hand that many people would have folded but you've decided to play this through with me. 

I will love you until I draw my last breath. I will cherish every moment we have together. It will be my honor to take you as my wife. 

There will never be another day as special as today. I promise you that I will do everything in my power to show you each and every day what you mean to me.

I know that no matter what comes our way our love will live for ever in our hearts. So in the future whenever you feel despair look back on this day and remember that I'll always be with you.

I'd also like to say that I've not only gained a wife but also
become part of a great family today.

  1. What a beautiful letter. You and Ed have so much love for each other & it shows in so many ways. While neither of you expected this journey when you first met, you have handled it with grace, humor, and love. You are both in my thoughts daily.... sending love and hugs :)
