I met you in August of 2013. You had a way about you. A very outgoing personality. The way you looked at me. The way you smiled. Your witty humor. I'll never forget the time at the December party in 2013 when you looked into my eyes and said "don't worry Laura, something will develop" Then our first official Date was on New Years Day of 2014. You took me to Breakfast. From that time on our lives had changed forever. We would forever be of importance to each other. The first 2 years held some uncertainty. But we did remain a part of each other's lives. In 2016 we got closer. You Trusted me with your deepest secrets. There were times in 2017 when you made some choices and in turn I needed some time away as well. Then a tragedy landed you in the Hospital for 2 months. I thought I would lose you for good. I spent 2 whole months visiting you every day In the Hospital. You finally woke up and recovered. That situation brought us much closer together. Still there was some tense periods of time we spent away from each other but we always found ourselves missing each other to finally end up back together again. There was just something special between us that we could not explain. It wasn't like most relationships. It was unique. It destined forever until death we parted. There were many hospitalizations. And I was always there to support you because of how much you meant to me. And during your recoveries we became much closer. But not in a way that anyone else could imagine. However, this year has been quite tragic You broke your arm and went to the E.R. on several occasions and had 2 more hospitalizations. This last time. Separated you and me from our last time together when we went shopping at price rite. And our last time we spoke on the phone when you said you Loved me and You missed me. I wish I could tell you now how much I miss you and how much I love you. But your life ended on December 19th 2020. And I could not visit you because if Covid 19 which us not what you had or died of. You died of status epilepticus, seizures that never let up, while unconscious and unable to breath on your on. Your heart stopped beating around 3:45 that day. But mine is still beating. And I miss you so much. I will never forget you. We had many special times together, we went out to eat, we went shopping and to the Movies. I'll never forget our Movie date on my birthday. Or all the times we watched movies at your place. Bible stories, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, and some very good modern movies with Tom Hanks or Leonardo DiCaprio movies just to name a few. Or some very truly interesting movies series or British sitcoms. I remember .... the times I cooked for you and enjoyed watching you enjoy my home cooking of turkey mushroom shepherd's pie, or lamb chops, or rosemary lamb burgers or Scarborough fair burgers, or Cornish hen. To name you favs. You loved the song and sang it to me and you would change the words to something like: "are we going to Scarborough fair?, parsley sage, rosemary and thyme. Remember me and Lauralee She still is a true love of mine" It was a really good time we had when we visited the Wolf Sanctuary in Lititz Pa. You always loved wolves. I loved your sense if humor and how you turned everything into a romantic Story. You would use all the Movie lines on me. I will never ever forget these 7 & 1/2 years. In the words of Humphrey Bogart "Here's looking at you Kid" And my words." I will always remember you. I loved you very much".
