Dear Peter,

A year ago today, you lost your wife, and your poem says it all.
A love such as your is indeed a treasure and your poem is a masterpiece.

when we have a good thing we sometimes do not realize it til time comes close to losing them. Many lose so quickly by auto accidents and other accidents, they have to have known love and how it was before and to go through some things we must go through is very heartbreaking.

Think you knew what it meant, my friend. You just didn't know the price of that love until that exact moment. So sorry -

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Found out the price when I almost lost my Daddy and twin sister in 2006 - terrible cost to the soul -
