The following is a recently found letter to one of my best friends from his wife that passed away two years ago.
At the time of her death, Gene and Rosemary had been married for fifty-two years.

A Letter of Love


Thank you, God,

for my husband,

as he is everything

I could want.


He is my best friend,

my lover and my confident.


He has nourished our marriage

with humor in good times and bad.


He has made a difference in

this world with his Christian

commitment to his family and me.


He is loving, caring and honest

with broad shoulders to rely on.


I still see rockets and stars

when I look at him.


He is still that same handsome,

tall Marine, my prince charming.


I am sure I am loved

and that we have something

beautiful and special within our love.


He always gives, for he has given me

thirty-four years of happiness and love.


I pray I can offer back to him

some of the love he has given me.


We are so very blessed,

and I love him so very much.


Rosemary Tarnowski

May 18, 1989

Another deja-vu, but I will stay put with my first review, as painful as any loss is, tender memories hold their own value that cannot be measured in gold.
