Oh Suzanne what a true love story!
Even though they were together for such a short time it was quality time.
Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

A wonderful tribute to love at any age.

Suzanne, this is one of your best pieces -- simple and complex, and beautifully written. I suspect that you had been working on it in your mind for a long time.

Ah, Suzanne, you made me cry, darling. What a moving story and great reminder that love is bountiful and available at any age. Love you,


Suzanne, it sounds like your Mother and Ron were two very lucky people! It is seldom that two people find such happiness in their early years, much less the later ones. And weren't you so very lucky to be a part of it and what hope it gives to others to know that it's never too late.

Suzanne, What a precious tribute to a precious couple ... I read it once, then called Gus in to read it aloud to him ... then read it again and again ... with tears of grateful remembrance each time. Thank you for sharing. Your Mother was a very special person; I wll cherish memories of her and Ron forever.
