I am sitting at my swivel desk chair thinking of you, of the 80 years of life we had together. The world we explored.

We had a most enviable marriage. 

We had many a difference of opinion, each trying to convince the other of their viewpoint. I have a strong ego.

In retrospect, I now concede you were always right.

Old age and acquiring wisdom.

At the age of 107 I know I won’t be around much longer.

Thanks for making my life pleasant.
