Were they wonderful years? They would say an emphatic yes, especially my dad, as he chokes up from telling me how he found, just two days ago, a letter my mother secretly wrote him in his joke notebook.
It was written with the intent that she would pass first and then he'd find it.
But she's still here, and he found it.
