Our Fairy Tale
I have to share how this all came about. You see I was married for nearly 28 years to my first love. We had and raised three children together. I lost him to leukemia in 1999. Following his death I concentrated on my future and started nursing school. During this time and unknown to me, a high school classmate lost is wife to colon cancer a few months after my loss. Another mutual classmate told us about each others loss. We reconnected over the internet via emails, chatting and then phone calls and our relationship grew. By the time I finished my classes, he invited me up to see Alaska to visit with him for a summer of carefree frolicking. We canoed, hiked, went deep sea fishing, camped, laughed, shared our thoughts and dreams and before we knew it the summer vanished. We returned together to our hometown for a high school reunion. Plans were that at the summers end I would go my way and he would go his and we would resume phone calls etc. Wrong- we had fallen in love and love is a very powerful thing. So I packed up some of my personal belongings and I returned to Alaska with him and we got married. And this folks, was just the beginning of our Never-ending Fairy Tale.
