Gloria, I will have to read this some other time. You see, I am already crying just reading the words that I highlighted. I have a really difficult time thinking about Georgia some day not being here. You mentioned your partner thinks you’re somewhat “dark.” I can relate to that. Actually, I’ll share another story with you, too, which I believe will help you understand why I’m hesitant about reading your piece. And this is what I wrote in a Facebook chat message to a friend last night:

“I am so in love with Georgia that I know I will not be able to handle the pain when she is no longer here. I will want to die. I love her more than I want to live. I would put myself in front of a car first to save her. I will not be able to live with the pain. I will be in a hell much worse than those people who believe in brimstone and fire. Life will be my hell.”
