A love that will never die

A very happy wedding anniversary to Ruthie (1969-2011) Leming and her husband Mike, my brother-in-law and the bravest man I know. This is Mike’s first anniversary without Ruthie, but I still say it’s a happy day because to have had a marriage like theirs is to have known the best life has to offer this side of paradise. May her memory, and the memory of their marriage, be forever blessed.
